& Sexier Kudos

“This is one sexy bar!

(NH customer to her date, overheard on a humid August night.) 

Sexy, it is, thanks in large part to the babinga, the West African rosewood from which this sexy bar gets its name.


The Babinga Bar has an extraordinary and unique selection of gin, tequila, fine whiskey, wine by-the-glass and bottle, cognac, liqueurs, beer, and classic and kraft cocktails, not to mention inventive house-made tonics and syrups.
