Old Alhambra

Old Alhambra

Named for a once-debaucherous saloon in the Flatiron neighborhood, the Old Alhambra comes from the “Dark Spirited” section of the Nomad’s staggering impressive cocktail list. Reading of Moorish nights spent in libraries among cigars and leather, the dosing of sherry, vermouth and crème de cacao has earned the Old Alhambra a cult following. Pair it at the restaurant with the world’s most elegant bar snack: Radishes dipped in tempered butter with fleur de sel.
