Tonight you drink with the jackelopes.
Welcome to the Sportsman’s Club, a boozy homage to hunting clubs of yore, now slinging top-shelf cocktails in the Ukrainian Village.
Housed in a former Polish tavern, Sportman’s original art deco bar has been gussied up with a reel-to-reel tape player and more taxidermy than you can shake an animal rights activist at.
Armed with an amaro machine, they’re putting together a solid menu of forward-thinking house cocktails alongside Chi classics. (Old Style with a shot of bourbon? Always.)
A few suggestions:
You’re On the Hunt For: An aperitif. Something to keep you light on your feet.
You Should Try: An Absinthe Frappe, made with simple syrup and lemon. Kicks like a mule despite its low profile. Absinthe’ll do that.
You Should Try: Their signature Sportsman cocktail: amaro, tart cherry and absinthe. Will warm your soul and steady the hand.
