5 out of 5 stars

The best version of your (grand)parents' 1960s dinner parties, this mid-century modern lounge has a fresh take on long-gone American sophistication.

The Bardo is an impassioned ode to mid-century home entertaining, decorated with vintage furniture arranged in intimate living room-like lounges. With the hi fi in full swing, the bartenders swirl libations to the retro soundtrack of soul, jazz and R&B from behind a swanky wood bar. The menu is chock full of creative interpretations of 1960s cocktail culture, with drinks like the Papa Bear, with hibiscus washed tequila, Pimm’s, botanical infused gin, passion fruit and fresh lemon juice, and A Walk In the Orchard, made with double rye, cynar 70, apple cider, lime juice, white pepper thyme and maple syrup, are served in mismatched vintage glassware the owners have collected for years. Lounge fare comes in a range of dinner party hors devours like olives covered in cream cheese, pimentos and toast crumbs and larger plates like pork belly pot pie.
