Winner of Most Loved Bar in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.
"Travel Bar Bloody Mary" is a delicious, unorthodox Bloody Mary that isn't dependent on presentation... Really solid. This one got my people's choice vote. 4.5/5
Toni Senecal visits Travel Bar in Carroll Gardens, where Mike Vacheresse takes you on vacation with his cocktail creations.
"The partners went for comfort, installing plush seats at the reclaimed-wood bar, and a banquette along the walls. Travel photographs dot the painted brick walls, depicting his and his partner's adventures."
Vacheresse built the bar menu at Bar Masa and several other Manhattan restaurants. At his place, there are both classic and signature cocktails including the "Get Off My Lawn" (Carpano di Torino white vermouth, Montenegro Amaro, Herbsaint, Agnostura Bitters, and muddled apple).
It's that kind of heartfelt service that will make Travel Bar a success here in Carroll Gardens. If you have not been yet, you definitely want to stop by soon.
Vacheresse, who has worked as a bartender for two decades, has poured drinks at some of the city’s top restaurants, including Gotham Bar and Grill and BLT Steak. He also served as the head bartender at Bar Masa.
