The new Marvel Bar in the North Loop has taken the art of the cocktail to a whole new level — a credit to Pip Hanson, the head bartender at the posh hot spot below the Bachelor Farmer.
Hanson, 31, said there are two key aspects to being a good bartender. “On the one hand there is mastery of classic technique,” he said. “On the other hand, there’s your contribution to the discourse — pushing things forward.”
Though he has created many elaborate cocktails, his favorite is a martini.
