Cocktails, Hotel Manteo Cold Spring NY 1933
These cocktail images were created shortly after the repeal of Prohibition in December 1933 in the state of New York, hence their celebratory air. Everyone is a little tipsy, including Manhattan’s newest skyscraper, the Empire State Building, which had been completed in 1931. The drawings come from a drinks menu from the Hotel Manteo in Cold Spring, New York and are a fine example of imaginative vintage menu artwork. The McCaffrey family ran this establishment from the early 1900s until 1978.
The original building is still there in Cold Spring and was for many years occupied by a bar called Whistling Willies. It closed in 2020.
