Negroni Sessions at Dante
My favorite happy hour in the city right now just happens to be inside my old favorite coffee shop Caffe Dante. Mr. T and I used to come here years ago for their frothy cappuccinos and sweet Italian cookies. The space has since been redone with much more emphasis on the food and drink menu and the addition of a long bar/table up front for extra seating.
Happy Hour here isn't called "happy hour" it's called The Negroni Sessions because every drink on their list is some take on the classic Negroni. There's the spring time Lavender Negroni and the pick-me-up Coffee Swizzle Negroni made with mezcal, cold brew and bitters.
There's the bright, citrus forward Negroni Frappe made with Junipero, Gran Lusso and orange juice...
...and of course even the Classic Negroni made with Bombay Sapphire, Campari and Maritni & Rossi Vermouth.
Unfortunately word on the Negroni Sessions is out because this place is always packed! However they take reservations so I highly suggest grabbing some friends and booking a table for a fun night of negroni sharing.
