Outfitted by Ralph Lauren, The Windsor has everything a sports bar needs: a television in (almost) every line of sight, a solid beer selection, shot flights, and a happy hour that knocks cocktail prices in half. But it also has plenty that distinguishes it from the typical sports pub. The bar itself only seats ten comfortably, leaving other patrons to sink into leather booths or cop tall chairs at one of the numerous two-tops. The interior walls are covered in pinstripe wool, while the French windows wouldn’t be out of place at a cozy brasserie. And the clean and pressed crowd here isn’t looking to binge on Bud Light pitchers. The bar offers six domestic craft beers on tap and a bottle list of roughly the same size. Meanwhile, the small cocktail menu has a section dedicated to the Old Fashioned—whiskey or scotch for traditionalists, or tequila or rum for an unorthodox take. Vodka is the base alcohol in most of the signature cocktails, which get an extra lift from fruity liqueurs and mixers. For instance: the 90-calorie Half Windsor, a subtle mix of vodka, fresh cucumber juice, agave, and lime juice.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
