I’ll never look at a bar the same way again. Okay, that’s a little dramatic. But spend one evening at The Punch Room sipping on incredible cocktails, and you’ll see what I mean. On my quest to learn more about this gem and the mastermind behind the bar, I rolled up to the doors in my glamour-less, embarrassingly dirty car, wondering, “Do I belong here?” And as soon as I rode up the elevator to the 15th floor of The Ritz-Carlton and entered the dark doors, I realized, yes, I do belong here. Because everyone should experience this place at least once.
