On our last trip to London I was excited to visit The Bar With No Name, which is located at 69 Colbrooke Row. As one of the longer standing cocktail bars in London and one with so much history and recognition, I was excited to experience it for myself. It would be just the 2nd […]
Classy cocktails and spectacular stays

Every once in awhile you hear about a new place opening up that you know you have to visit. The SG Club in Tokyo was one of those for me. About a year prior to visiting, Tate and I visited SpeakLow in Shanghai, bartender Shingo Gokan’s first cocktail bar – and one of my all time favorite […]
We recently went to a dozen of the best bars in Paris. Le Syndicat, Little Red Door, Candelaria – we went to them all. But my favorite drinks? Danico. Now, to fully understand my excitement leading up to this bar, it’s important to know a few good things. The Backstory that Led Me to Danico […]
