Pegu Club, New York


 The Pegu Club, named after a British colonial club in Rangoon where a gin-based cocktail called Pegu was invented for the thirsty Brits living there, is rightly considered one of the best cocktail spots in New York. The place is sort of Asian style but not too much, very classy and comfortable, quite at the aperitif time and more lively after dinner. Cocktails are perfect, both if you look for evergreens of for novelties: in this case you should not miss the  infused Earl Grey MarTEAni. Food is also interesting: trout eggs, coconut shrimp and other Asian delicacies will accompany your drinks in a perfect moment of “escape” from the NY bars crowd. Classic Martini rate: 8.
