From 1920 to 1936, Americans were faced with prohibition laws from the Federal government. However, bartending culture remained alive throughout prohibition. Working in underground speakeasies, bartenders continued to innovate. Some had fled to work in the best hotel bars in Europe and came back after Prohibition with a complete new set of ideas inspired by their travels!
We hope to pay them reverence and introduce you to our favorite recipes. Our menu is here to surprise you. Our unique tasting experiences are here to bring you into the world of spirits.
From the best Whiskey selection to the unraveled Mezcal brought to you from the depth of Mexico, this is the world you can spend a lifetime exploring, one drink at a time.
What is a cocktail?
The full meaning of a cocktail got defined in 1806, when The Balance and Columbian Repository of Hudson, New York, pinned the cocktail down to what we follow today: “a stimulating liquor composed of any kind of sugar, water and bitters”, vulgarly called a bittered sling.
At Oculto 477, we aim to give reverence to the cocktail mastery that preceded us. Our cocktails carry the weight of their history.
