In the decades after the Civil War, New York City had the most elegant bars, skilled bartenders and sophisticated mixed drinks the world has ever seen. At Jerry Thomas's, Harry Johnson's Little Jumbo, Rogers' Chop House and bars of such hotels as Hoffman House, Holland House and Waldorf-Astoria, bartenders were celebrities and patrons rich and famous.
