When hosting friends or family in New York, there is a requisite list of a dozen or so activities to include on the itinerary: a Broadway show, strolling through Central Park, at least one late-night pizza pitstop and, new to a century’s worth of NYC traditions: drinking cocktails at PDT. For such a tiny bar, its reputation is vast, much due in part to its phone booth-in-a-hot-dog-stand entrance and ubiquitous bartender-proprietor Jim Meehan. Seven years after opening, its popularity remains intact thanks to always solid cocktails, Meehan’s tireless ambassadorship and the success of The PDT Cocktail Book, a guide that is essentially the next century’s singular snapshot of today’s cocktail renaissance.
