Tony Conigliaro, of 69 Colebrooke Row, created the cocktails at this boutique hotel’s lounge. The parlor-style room is designed to look like the abode of a fictional 19th-century eccentric spinster called Aunt Wilhelmina. Beyond the made-up character’s portrait are intricate, silly details including ornate wallpaper, velveteen chairs and a taxidermied kangaroo wearing boxing gloves. Paying homage to Clerkenwell’s distilling heritage, Conigliaro sourced old recipes for tinctures, bitters and herbal remedies that line the apothecary-style bar. And though the tinctures are complex, the drinks are simple with three to four ingredient formulas.
