Bibo Ergo Sum
Now you see them, now you don’t: The cocktails of Bibo Ergo Sum—“I drink, therefore I am”—disappear almost magically. That’s fitting, as its Proprietors-designed menu is inspired by the art of illusion and Christopher Nolan's The Prestige. Bedecked in Art Deco decor, Bibo drops the beverage know-how and scientific prowess of the team behind the Walker Inn into a neighborhood lacking complex cocktail bars. The result? Approachable but dramatic, elegant and innovative drinks that develop as the menu progresses—such as the Grandpa Joe with its centrifuge-clarified citrus, and the carbonated Dr. Julius, made with clarified milk-washed rum, orange peel and vanilla bean, that's then run through a draft line.
