To celebrate the fifth annual Negroni Week, participating bars will be seeing red through Sunday with this delectable Summer drink. Presented by Imbibe Magazine and Campari.Negroni Week launched in 2013 as a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charities around the world. 

This year Negroni Week takes place from June 5-11, 2017, when once again, bar and restaurants will be mixing classic Negronis and Negroni variations for a great cause. Here is a list of our favorite spots to go to. Try one, try all it's for charity.

Grand Banks West St & N Moore St, New York, NY  - A celebrated oyster bar aboard the historic wooden schooner, Sherman Zwicker. Inspired by the floating "oyster barges" that lined Manhattan's waterfront in the 18th and 19th centuries, Grand Banks features sustainably harvested oysters, nautically inspired cocktails, and awe-inspiring views.

STK Meatpacking 26 Little W 12th St, New York, NY - STK artfully blends the modern, steakhouse and chic lounge into one - offering a dynamic, fine dining experience with the superb quality of a traditional steakhouse.

Momofuku Nishi 32 8th Ave, New York, NY - Momofuku Nishi (which means “west”) opened in January 2016 and is Momofuku’s first restaurant on the west side. Located in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood, guests can choose from a la carte offerings for lunch or dinner. Nishi’s Bo Ssäm and Pok Pok x Nishi Fried Chicken meals meant for sharing are also available for dinner.
