If you want to feel like Ernest Hemingway enjoying a cocktail after a day of writing in 1930s Spain, check out Vermutería 600, the aptly named vermouth bar at the brand-new Hotel Madrid in Walker’s Point.

While you can sip on the house-made vermouth served on tap, why not indulge in “Living the High Life,” a magical combination of Lustau Finest Selection Gran Reserva Brandy, sweet vermouth, fig-infused dry curaçao, two kinds of bitters and winter spice vapor, shown here?

600 S. Sixth St.,
