Summer is perfect for Negroni’s, and for this reason, Negroni Week’s timing couldn’t be more perfect. Join The Upstairs and our amazing bartenders for a celebration of the wonderful classic cocktail during June 2nd through the 8th.
Here at The Upstairs, we’re both a cocktail bar and a neighborhood haunt. This means that we’re good for both a casual, friendly environment, as well as a vast amount of cocktail know-how. Take advantage of both these qualities and enjoy Negroni Week with us. We’ll be serving up both the classic Negroni, as well as a number of fun Negroni variations.
New Amsterdam Gin, Campari, Dolin Rouge Sweet Vermouth
Viále: Bulleit Bourbon, Gran Classico, Punt e Mes
Negrinha: Novo Fogo Aged Cachaça, Campari, Dolin Rouge Sweet Vermouth, orange bitters
Old Pal: Old Overholt Rye, Campari, Dolin Dry Vermouth
Our Special Take on the Negroni for Negroni Week
San Lucar Negroni:
A very special take on the classic negroni featuring Lustau Manzanilla Papirusa sherry, Suze, and New Amsterdam Gin. Served up, and with an orange twist.
Our bartenders are super knowledgeable, so be sure to ask for something special if you’re interested in something in particular like cocktails with local spirits or interesting liqueurs.
Aviation gin from Portland, creme de violette, fresh lemon juice, splash of Maraschino, shaken and served up. A classic cocktail originally named for its pale sky blue color.
Clavo Ahumado (aka Mezcal Nail)
El Peloton de la Muerte Mezcal, Drambuie (scotch-based honey heather liqueur), orange peel, stirred and served on the rocks, finished with a spritz of smoky scotch. A spin off the Rusty Nail.
Aged rum, Giffard Banane du Bresil, fresh lime, ginger syrup, shaken and served up, finished with a spritz of smoky scotch.
Turntable Sundae is this weekend!
Every last Sunday of the month we pull out the turntables and host DJ Filthy Rich and his hand-picked special guests for a night of vinyl, booze, and basically, a bunch of cool people.
Turntable Sundae kicks off at 7pm and goes until around midnight. Upstairs Happy Hour goes from 5pm to 8pm, so stop in early to catch that for some great deals on pre-funk drinks. You can also order some small bites from our sister restaurant Pintxo downstairs!
We love our new sidewalk sign! It’s first feature is a throwback to the folks at Hawthorn Lounge in Wellington, NZ.
The Negroni cocktail is the perfect companion for this lovely spring weather we’ve been enjoying recently. Try a Classic Negroni (New Amsterdam Gin, Campari, Dolin Rouge Sweet Vermouth) or one of our featured variations: Viále (Bulleit Bourbon, Gran Classico, Punt e Mes); Negrinha (Novo Fogo Aged Cachaça, Campari, Dolin Rouge Sweet Vermouth, orange bitters); Old Pal (Old Overholt Rye, Campari, Dolin Dry Vermouth). The possibilities are endless! Just ask your bartender. Salute!
