About Ernest Hemingway
It’s no secret that booze was Hemingway’s life-blood, for himself as much for his fictional cohorts. He was also a sophisticated drinker, a local connoisseur who sought out the best bars from Paris to Pamplona. The Old Man presents 12 new experimental cocktails as a homage to Hemingway, connecting drinkers to the novels, history and folklore using distinctive culinary gears and unique ingredients. The signature cocktail menu is a nostalgic ode to Hemingway’s particularities, including “Yesteryear Cocktails.”
