IN New York Night Spots - The After-Dark Scene

Quote-Worthy Cocktails

Black Hound Bar & Lounge is a modern Battery Park City bar with drinks inspired by noteworthy thinkers like Ernest Hemingway and Winston Churchill.

History’s great minds—from writers and poets to politicians and prodigies—aren’t above indulging in alcohol’s alluring effects. Black Hound Bar & Lounge (right), a modern Battery Park City watering hole, reminds us of this tipsy truth with a menu of cocktails inspired by the boozy musings of noteworthy thinkers. The Moveable Feast (rye, Amaro Montenegro, Luxardo Fine) is paired with Ernest Hemingway’s quip—“Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.”—while Painting as a Pastime (vodka, pistachio syrup, ginger, lime) comes with an assurance from Winston Churchill that he has “taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of [him].”
