Raising the Bar

September 9, 2011 / Natasha Nuñez

We love fashion as much as the next guy, but we’re also more than a little excited about the opening today of The Kanon Bar, curated by Apotheke, on the 8th floor of Milk Studios. Apotheke’s star mixologists will be serving up the five designer-inspired Kanon Organic Vodka cocktails below. Make it a double!
