Step away from the whiskey and don’t you dare say the word tequila because blended amaro is the house shot at this taxidermy chic bar. Shots are distributed from the new must-have drinking accessory: an amaro machine. Enjoy a shooter with a game of checkers and keep an eye on the backyard, which will turn into an al fresco drinking sanctuary this summer.
