The far-reaching influence of New York's reigning queen of mixology, Audrey Saunders, is hard to measure. Her storied cocktail lounge, the Pegu Club, begat many of today's standard-bearers, including Death & Company, PDT and Mayahuel. Pay a visit to the urbane barroom, a second floor sanctum on bustling Houston Street, and explore Saunders’ eminent opus, which includes new classics such as the Gin-Gin Mule. She first served the drink—a vivacious elixir of homemade ginger beer with Tanqueray gin, fresh mint and lime juice—at the Beacon Restaurant & Bar in 2000. Equally renowned is the Earl Grey MarTEAni, a frothy and fragrant nod to English teatime traditions made with loose-leaf–infused Tanqueray gin, lemon juice and an egg white.

They don't say they have the best mixologist for nothing!!! Never been disappointed when I pop in here for drinks. Regardless If I'm showing the town to out of towners or just don't want to waste time walking around looking for good spot for an great drink Pegu Club never disappoints. Want something spicy....you got it. Want something on fire....you got that too!! Want an exotic flower in your drink??? Well guess what?? Yup...you can have that too. We had a great time tasting all sorts of drinks thanks to Raul who asked what we liked & decided to what he does best...mix, mix, mix & spoil us and our tastebuds.
