Our Favorite Craft Cocktail Bars

 

Windhorst Bar, Berlin, Germany

Consumatorium Reviews: Craft Bars in Berlin, Germany

Just down the street from Checkpoint Charlie in what used to be known as East Berlin, is a quickly growing area of new bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Contrary to its long term austerity during Soviet occupation, it has become a young, hip and vibrant community of art, architecture and, of course, craft cocktails. We, your ...

Consumatorium Reviews: OAK at Fourteenth, Boulder

Last night, I and two faithful Consumatorium readers, Bill and Seth, went to OAK at Fourteenth to sample their cocktails and cocktail experience. I'm hoping to make this into a series, covering the large and statistically unlikely number of excellent bars in Boulder. I arrived at 5pm, and the bar and restaurant were largely empty ...

Consumatorium Reviews: The Med in Boulder

This week the Consumatorium crew went to The Med (Mediterranean Restaurant) in Boulder. The Med is one of Boulder's hotspots; the restaurant has amazing food that has been consistently great since I've lived here (13 years now), and when they doubled their space a couple of years ago you still couldn't get a walk-in table ...
Smoked Cocktail

Consumatorium Reviews: Craft Bars in Budapest, Hungary

During our recent, very brief stop in Budapest, Hungary, we found the craft bar scene surprisingly good, but we were disappointed to find out that during our Sunday/Monday visit to the city, several of the best bars were closed. Undaunted, we found a couple of interesting cocktail purveyors and another that's not only worth mentioning, but ...
Rapscallion at Ruby

Consumatorium Reviews: Craft Cocktail Bars in Copenhagen, Denmark

Following up on our Stockholm bar review last week, the Consumatorium team continued our Northern European tour and headed to Copenhagen, Denmark. There, we found two things that threw us for a loop. One, everything was shockingly expensive and, two, craft cocktails were available everywhere we turned. Or, should I say, really expensive craft cocktails were available ...
Hotel Nacional de Cuba - Outside

Consumatorium Reviews: Cuban Cocktail Adventures

When most of us think of Cuba, we have a romantic mental image made up of scenes from the 1950s, perhaps including Al Pacino visiting on the eve of the revolution (Godfather reference). A place full of nightclubs, casinos and, of course, bars where cantineros (Cuban bartenders) threw Cuban cocktails between mixing glasses and poured from ...

Consumatorium Reviews: Hawaiian Craft Cocktail Culture

Hook, Line & Sinker at the Four Seasons Wailea I recently visited Maui with my family – everyone’s of drinking age – and we went on a quest to check out bars and restaurants around Weilea, a resort area of Maui. We fully expect to find menus full of sugary Tiki drinks and highballs filled ...
Atomic Liquors - Las Vegas

Consumatorium Reviews: Atomic Liquors in Las Vegas

Atomic Liquors is located at 917 Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas. Originally built in 1945 as a café, Atomic became the first freestanding bar in Las Vegas in 1952. The bar was named for the time when its patrons watched atomic blasts taking place at the not too distant Nevada Test Site from the roof of the ...

Consumatorium Reviews: Monkey Bar, NYC

The traveling Consumatorium review team recently visited the famous Monkey Bar in New York City and consumed some of the excellent cocktails from its classic bar. The Monkey Bar was opened towards the end of Prohibition and was known as a place for casual encounters. With it’s location inside a hotel and with a drink ...
Dutch Kills Bar in Queens

Consumatorium Reviews: New York City Craft Cocktail Bars – Dutch Kills and BlackTail

The best New York City craft cocktail bars. In this episode, Dutch Kills in Queens and Blacktail in lower Manhattan ...
Drink at Hanson's

Consumatorium Reviews: Orlando Craft Cocktail Bars

Recently, we found ourselves in Orlando, Florida and, as usual, set out on a mission to identify the best Orlando Craft Cocktail Bars. As it turns out, Orlando, like several other Florida cities we’ve visited, has a great craft cocktail scene. No, none of them are at Disney World, although a drunk Mickey would be ...

Consumatorium Reviews: Hemingway Bar in Prague, Czech Republic

Recently, the entire Consumatorium staff went on a field trip to the Hemingway Bar in Prague, Czech Republic.  Not only is the Hemingway Bar a fabulous craft bar, but they specialize in their namesake's favorite drinks - absinthe, rum and champagne. Specialize somehow doesn't do it justice, though. Their cocktail menu includes three pages of absinthe choices alone ...
Slippbarinn Bar in Reykjavik

Consumatorium Reviews: Craft Bars in Reykjavik Iceland

Reykjavic, while old and established in so many ways, is fairly new to cocktail bars. In fact, the first real craft cocktail bar in town, Slippbarinn, at the Reykjavik Marina Hotel, opened in 2012. The city's recent arrival on the cocktail scene didn't prevent the Consumatorium team from checking out the its quickly growing adoption of craft ...
Sarasota Craft Cocktail Bars

Consumatorium Reviews: Craft Cocktail Bars in Sarasota Florida

Who knew that Sarasota was a Mecca for craft cocktail bars? We didn't even have time to hit all the great bars in town during our brief stay. That's not to say that we didn't try. Someone really needs to find a reliable hangover cure or maybe we just need to avoid having drinks on ...
Virtù - Scottsdale

Consumatorium Reviews: Craft Bars in Scottsdale, Arizona

The cocktail scene in Scottsdale is excellent. In addition to the fact that there are many craft cocktail bars, most of the bars also offer a happy hour where drinks are often considerably discounted. To our surprise, it isn’t only the well drinks (the drinks often made with lesser, cheaper ingredients) that get the lower ...

Consumatorium Reviews: Pharmarium in Stockholm, Sweden

For most of our readers, Stockholm is not part of the usual pub crawl circuit. That, however, doesn’t keep the Consumatorium team from covering all the bases for our international and traveling followers. And what better bar for us to cover than the Pharmarium. It was, obviously, meant to be discussed here by virtue of ...
