1999 BEST Bartender, Cocktails
Peter Cipriani, 29 Newbury
Sure, the only requirement for a good bartender is that he’s quick with a drink. For a great bartender, stir in some personality. But to be elevated to Bar God status, you need a whole lot more. Peter has the perfect recipe: Take equal parts wit, charm, and smarts, add lightning reflexes with a lighter, perfect name recall, and fabulous looks, and top with a huge dollop of humor. No wonder 29 has been a magnet for big personalities- scientists and hairdressers and club kids and club owners – during the five years that Peter’s held court. He thinks the patrons pack the small watering hole because they’re “united in their love of alcohol.” Ask a regular, and it’s for Peter’s sake.
