With all the ways a bar can color you bad (gratuitous lighting, awkward playlist), it’s easy to get painted into a corner.
Retreat upstairs (we’re sold on the stunning pink floor) for a proper spot to mull over drink options inspired by the Pantone guide. Pennies from Heaven — Templeton Rye, Amaro Meletti, Leopold Brothers Sour Apple Liqueur, amontillado sherry, and The Bon Vivants Gold Rush Bitters — is what we imagine the treasure at the end of the rainbow tastes like.
Trick Dog’s playful color schemes and thoughtful touches (lights sourced from the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, shade-cutter sconces) are instant conversation starters.
Like a Magic Eye puzzle, you’ll spy something new every time.
After all, when in chrome.
