On December 5, River Bar will salute the 21st Amendment by shaking up a collection of pre-Prohibition cocktails for Repeal Day. Dating back to the 19th century, the Old Fashioned has been heralded as one of the most classic concoctions and in homage, River Bar will feature three variations ($11 each) whose gradations vary from lightest to darkest:

  • Berkshire Mountain Distillers Barrel Aged Ethereal Gin, West India Orange Bitters, sugar
  • El Dorado 3 Year Demerara Rum, Velvet Falernum, angostura bitters
  • Glendalough Double Barrel Irish Whiskey, whiskey barrel aged bitters, Luxardo cherry



River Bar opened its doors in Somerville’s Assembly Row in November of 2014. River Bar offers an intimate indoor setting complete with a traditional bar and a culinary bar and an expansive, lively outdoor area with fire pits and trees overlooking the Mystic River. The menu of “elevated street food” by Executive Chef Patrick Gilmartin (Staff Meal Food Truck; Rialto) is complemented by a contemporary cocktail list that is founded in classic preparations. Founded by restaurateur Ken Kelly, River Bar’s sister venues include The Independent, Foundry on Elm, Saloon, Brass Union and The Rockwell. River Bar is located at 661 Assembly Row in Somerville.
