PEGU CLUB

77 E Houston St, NY, New York, USA
back to list

The Pegu Club on Houston Street is not the first bar by that name. In the early 1800s, British army captains set up a gentleman’s club in Rangoon called Pegu Club, and its renown stretched far over the continent, giving rise to the expatriate drinking community in Asia as well as the then-famous Pegu cocktail. That original saloon is now long gone, but its legacy lives on at Audrey Saunders’s venerated cocktail haunt, the place that helped launch a full-on mixology movement in Manhattan. Saunders honed her skills at no less of a drinking Vatican than the Bemelman’s Bar, in The Carlyle, and when she set out to start a place of her own, the inventive concoctions she came up with at Pegu Club started a frenzy.

There is so much attention to detail here, from the slow-melting giant ice cubes to the precise measurements that make every drink perfect. Although Saunders is a married woman and may not always be around to make the drinks personally, her spirit is still shaken and stirred into every order at Pegu Club. Go have a strange cocktail and pretend, for a moment, that you’re not on Houston Street—you’re in Rangoon.
