Bistro Sidecar

Bistro Sidecar

The history of the Bistro Sidecar cocktail starts in the late 19th century. It was first time created by a bartender named Dick Bradsell, who has a bar called the Cocktail Club in London. It is not clear how long it took for this drink to be popularized. But, its popularity grew when it started to be served at Hilton hotel bars. The drink became so famous that it was featured on ‘Mad Men’ TV show in 2013.
