“One of ‘10 Great Books for Booze-Loving Book Nerds’” -Liberty Hardy, BookRiot "Two features take Cabe's book to an even more thoughtful level. Cabe procures the recipe for each bar or tavern's signature drink--helpful for those far from the Big Apple. Further, using quotes from the authors who frequented the venues, as well as magazine excerpts from their time of prominence, Cabe captures the cultural scene of times long since past [sic]. This is a book that will appeal to cocktail lovers, literary aficionados, New Yorkers, and anyone looking for a drinking spot with ghosts in its closet." - Cool Hunting
