The Savoy’s “American Bar” is the oldest cocktail bar in Britain and one of the most renowned bars in the world. It was named World’s Best Bar at Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards 2018 and the World’s Best Bar at World’s 50 Best in 2017. The American Bar’s ethos combines innovation, simplicity and glamour to create the classics with a twist, as well as new and vintage creations. On May 1st this iconic bar will be taking over Cask in Cork for one night only!
Ferdia Murray of American Bar said, “I’m so excited to be visiting Cask. It’s one of the best cocktail bars around and I love the renegade, devil-may-care attitude that these guys have shown in their approach and in their creativity. It’s going to be a great evening, bringing an element of American Bar to Cask to create something very cool. And the fact that both my parents were born and raised in Cork and went to University College Cork makes our visit to Cask even more exciting.”
The takeover will be co-hosted alongside Cask’s Andy Ferreira and Carl d’Alton, both having represented Ireland internationally as winners of the World Class Irish Bartender of the Year competition in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
On the night, American Bar will be creating some of their favourite drinks from their newly-launched menu, “The Savoy Songbook”. The menu pays homage to the legendary musicians and songwriters that have entertained guests in the American Bar for decades, with each cocktail created with one of the bar’s most iconic songs in mind.
Andy Ferreira, manager of Cask, said, “We’re honoured to welcome the legendary American Bar to Cask. It offers our team an opportunity to work with the best, but also to show one of the best bars in the world how we approach cocktails and more importantly to give them a taste in Irish hospitality which is very unique. Massive thanks to BACARDI Brands at Edward Dillon and Co. for making it possible. It definitely won’t be one to miss!”
