Audrey Saunders is the high priestess of cocktails in New York. Her Pegu Club is a favourite of The Guys and many New Yorkers. It is a place where all are welcome, celebrities do not get any special treatment except maybe a quiet table in the back. Audrey and her bartenders use the finest ingredients and are "the gatekeepers of classic cocktail culture". She is a bit of an historian when it comes to cocktails. She has studied and often refers to 1940s bibles as David Embury's The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks or Charles Baker's The Gentleman's Companion. Truly a great guest with a great cocktail lounge!
