Last night was the final night of Adam Bernbach’s Tuesday Cocktail Sessions. Above is the menu for the night, consisting of some of Adam’s greatest hits of past Cocktail Sessions. I’d had many of these drinks before and I think this was actually a pretty great selection of cocktails that showed Adam’s range of abilities.
The bar was more crowded than at any other Cocktail Session I’ve been to – and early. By the time I arrived (around 7:30), the bar was about three to four deep. It only got more crowded from there, a testament to the popularity of Adam’s work at Bar Pilar. Adam signed the menu with a note to his customers.
Thank you so much for all the support. It’s been an amazing year and a half here at Pilar. I will definitely miss it.
As I’ve said before on this site, Bernbach’s departure from Bar Pilar is a loss. But I look forward to his future projects, which hear may include one-off parties. The big question I have is if Adam will land at another DC-area bar or if he’ll seek to start his own project. In any event – best of luck Adam and thanks for the great times at Bar Pilar.
