Making great cocktail classics from a limited menu is one thing but J Boroski doesn’t follow ordinary rules. There’re
no menus and the drinks are custom made every time. It takes a special quality of bartender to craft bespoke drinks minute after minute, day after day, but Anthony Edwards is up for the challenge. Handpicked by master mixologist Joseph Boroski for the bar bearing his name, Edwards puts the craft into craft cocktails.
