Best of Philly

2012 Bartender

George Costa

Standing behind the long oak at Pub and Kitchen, Costa has the three talents every great bartender needs: He makes a classic drink to your exact specifications, he shakes up a custom cocktail like nothing you’ve ever tried before, and he knows more about bitters and rye than you do about your own children.
