The house that Audrey built, Pegu Club is one among a few standard-bearers in the crowded mixology ranks of New York City. The space might be described as “imperialist chic,” with dark woods, spare palm fronds, kimono-clad servers, and an aesthetic that borrows gently from the Orient (apt for a bar named after a 19th century Burmese British officer’s club). But Pegu Club isn’t a bartender’s history lesson. Sure, anyone on Saunders’ team could easily craft a classic cocktail, but the real, exotic magic of Pegu Club happens on the bar’s changing seasonal menu. Mixologist Scott Teague, who introduced himself to Saunders with a letter, carries on the tradition of respect for classics coupled with freedom of innovation with drinks like the smoky, fruity, pleasantly parching Gentleman’s Agreement.
