One of the World’s Best Bars Pops Up in London For the First Time at Rooftop Bar…

Dante NYC, New York’s famous Aperitivo bar will be popping up at Madison’s Rooftop Bar for an exclusive week-long takeover between 29 September – 4 October 2017. Bringing a taste of New York to London, the award-winning bar will be recreated in the heart of the city, complete with world class cocktails, live entertainment and skyline views.

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 5 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.

The drinks menu will feature some of Dante NYC’s greatest hits including their modern classic, the Garibaldi, the Italiano Sour, with Martini Bitter, Aperol, Strega, Italicus, grapefruit, lilac and egg white. Cocktails from their very popular Negroni Sessions will include the Chocolate Negroni with Fords, Campari, Punt e Mes, crème de cacao, chocolate bitters and valrhona. Joining the lineup will be Rooftop Life – one of two unique serves inspired by Madison’s rooftop scene, created by the Dante NYC team especially for the pop up, made using Bombay Sapphire, St Germain, bianco vermouth, lime, prosecco, green stuff.

Leslie Kwarteng, Senior General Manager of Madison says “We are delighted to be welcoming Linden, Naren and the Dante NYC team to Madison this autumn. We are sure they will create buzz with their infamous Aperitivo Hour and impressive cocktails bringing a flavor of New York City to London.”
