The Alembic

Designed by Nothing : Something.

The heavy liquors served at The Alembic are matched, literally and figuratively, by their heavily designed menus. Loaded with typography and layers of flourishes the design indicates the slight decadence of this place and the main liquor menu comes in a five-pound steel housing. Is it whiskey-o-clock yet?

Visit The Alembic Bar.

Thanks to Sam Potts for the suggestion.

I kinda like the randomness of the whole thing. Very Dada...

Christine Celic Strohl’s comment is:

These menus are beautiful in person, my only complaint is the metal covers are really heavy and threaten to cut you after a few too many sazeracs.

Check out their other menus for Magnolia down the street!
