No. 308 crafts classic cocktails, bar bites
By Nancy Vienneau
Every great bar's got a story, and No. 308, newly launched by Alexis Soler and Ben Clemons at 407 Gallatin Road, already has a host of them.
It starts with its name. No. 308 was the room in Manhattan's Ace Hotel where Soler proposed to Clemons, a month after their meeting at the "Tales of the Cocktail" bartenders convention in New Orleans. Partners in business, soon to be partners in life, they discovered a shared passion and vision: The crafting of a cocktail, the surroundings in which it's enjoyed, the people engaged on either side of the pour - all are components of a great bar and springboards for story.
