Winter is coming.
So prepare yourself for the start of the season. Of Game of Thrones Season 7, we mean…
Tucked in the Flatiron district is the famous Michelin-starred restaurant Junoon. While the Indian delicacies are something to write home about, it’s the craft behind the bar that has us there weekly perched on the stools.
Hemant Pathak is the brains behind the world class cocktails served at Junoon. Hailing from India, he has accumulated a vast array of awards over his career including World Class Global “Classic and Vintage Drinks with a Twist” and the HT Crystal Award. For his prestige and fame within the industry, he’s remarkably down to earth and humble, yet equally focused.
He created NYC’s first GOT cocktail menu to accompany the show. Now to celebrate the start of the 7th season, Junoon is hosting A Game of Thrones Season Opener Viewing Party on Sunday 16th July from 8:30pm-11:30pm.
Naturally you should attend, but more so that you can enjoy Arya Stark, one of most impeccable drinks we’ve ever tasted. Made with Brockmans, Japanese umeshu fruit wine, lime, and homemade spiced plum compote, it’s refreshing and picks up on the angelica root buried in our botanical profile. You can enjoy two or three GOT cocktails along with light bites throughout the evening for $38 and $55 respectively. It’s something you wouldn’t want to miss as we doubt there is a bartender out there who spends as much time in the kitchen as Pathak, researching flavour profiles and creating the perfect drinks accompaniment.
We’ll be there watching the start of the season, chatting with Pathak and enjoying cocktails and nibbles. Are you in?
