Jerry Thomas is a speakeasy, in pure style prohibitionist of New York ’20s.
At 30 Vicolo Cellini, there is an unmarked door, no sign, just a “Prof. bell Jerry Thomas “. It sounds and looks as long as you open a door viewer and gives the watchword.
The restaurant is a lounge in the art deco style, with an unfounded counter, bottles of alcohol in Bellavista and bartenders dressed to the nines, with the bowler and the waxed mustache. There is a duo that plays swing music, Luca Filastro floor and Guido Giacomini, bass and voice, to go back in time.
The “Professor” Jerry Thomas, which has inspired the local, is the man who in 1862 wrote the first book on the art of mixing cocktails and laid the foundations of mixology to make a real profession. Hence the choice of the name of the owners of the Roman club: Leonardo Leuci, Antonio Parlapiano and Roberto Artusio.Nel 2010, when Jerry Thomas opens its doors in the capital, there were few to profess our own bartender mixology.
The local of the cocktail menu, full of accurate information about the history and the ingredients that make every drink, involves the use of almost forgotten Italian liqueurs: maraschino, Italian vermouth, Barolo Chinato and bitters flavored homemade.
