Castell speaks directly to New York City’s past, and nothing says classic NYC more than the iconic martini.

Evocative of the 1960s, with a bit of a Mad Men vibe, Castell’s beverage menu rotates an intriguing list of libations – each cocktail part throwback, part invention – all based on the classic drinks of yore, with a twist of trend.
