W Hotel’s New Basement Bar Takes ‘Root’


Sometimes to happen upon a rare find, you have to go underground.

IMG_6483Opening tonight, Root Cellar is in the bottom floor of the W Hotel’s Pinea restaurant.  This one’s your not-so-typical basement bar that gets to the root of your barrel aged bias.

The menu boasts 90 whiskeys,  and you’ll want to try every one this winter… after making your way through the custom cocktail creations.  We recommend the Old Square (don’t worry — you won’t become one!) and the Barrel Aged Negroni.

If you’re in the mood for food, you should know that Pinea will host a monthly dinner pairings series at the bar showcasing their selections of whiskeys, scotches and wines.  Or stop in daily from 5-8 for happy hour specials and half-price Mediterranean “merenda” menu items.

You may love it so much you’ll get rooted to this spot.
