Many of the world’s most iconic classic cocktails came from hotel bars, from London’s Savoy and its Corpse Reviver #2 to New Orleans’ Hotel Monteleone and its Vieux Carre. Bar Margot, an exquisite cocktail lounge inside the Four Seasons, feels just as timeless as the forebearers to whom it pays homage. But beyond the tufted leather chairs and top-shelf booze, you’ll find warm, approachable service, a sleekly modern atmosphere, and a little dash of whimsy here and there—after all, the bar itself is named after and inspired by a Wes Anderson character. Behind the bar, beverage manager Tokiwa Sears expertly mixes drinks that channel a bit of Margot’s mystique—in some cases, with a subtle wink to the Anderson canon itself (see: Mordecai’s Revenge, a Chartreuse-laced tequila drink garnished with a peacock feather).
