Dante NYC x Madison Rooftop Bar: The Lowdown

Bringing many of the unique and eye-popping perfect serves that have brought Dante NYC’s innovative bar program global recognition to London for one week only, the Aperitivo Hour is set to be something very special, transporting Madison guests all the way to Greenwich Village, NYC. The pop-up will lead into the World’s 50 Best Bars awards, which takes place in London on 5th October 2017 of which Dante is currently listed as number 34, as well as recently being named Best Restaurant Bar in America by the prestigious Tales of the Cocktail.

The highly talented bars team from Dante NYC and Madison will be welcoming guests to the Aperitivo Hour on the famed rooftop terrace, with spectacular views across the City of London skyline. Celebrating la dolce vita, the pop-up will reflect all the good things that define this easygoing lifestyle of the aperitivo culture and how this has become the most exciting movement in the global cocktail community, with Dante leading this renaissance.
