Classic cocktails seem to be making a comeback—and what more proof do you need than the start of a Forgotten Cocktail Club here in town. The idea behind the club, first developed by B&O Brasserie bar manager Brendan Dorr and Woodberry Kitchen bar manager Corey Polyoka, is to get drinkers out of their comfort zone and enjoy cocktails from the pre-Prohibition era.

"We want to do pseudo-Speakeasy-style stuff," says Dorr. "We're hoping to encourage people to try something they'd never normally order."

The inaugural event is tomorrow night at the downstairs bar of Maisy's from 7 p.m. until whenever the cocktails run out (Dorr's guess is around 1:30 a.m.) Dorr and Jon Blair (bartender at Ryleigh's Oyster and manager at Blackwater Distilling) will be creating 10 types of vintage concoctions, including a fizz, a punch, a take on a Singapore Sling, and a twist on a Manhattan. In true vintage style, the event is cash only.

The club is designed as a pop-up group, so Dorr recommends to follow the Facebook page for upcoming events.
