Taking its name from the 1983 movie that had Tom Cruise stripping down to his jocks and sliding across the floor, Risky Business is an 80-seater bar that pays tribute to all things Tom Cruise. The bar decor and signature drinks (all $18 each) draw inspiration from his classic flicks, including Risky Business, Cocktail, Top Gun (of course) and more.
Patrons feeling a little Maverick can try the Top Gun-inspired Your Ego Is Writing Cheques Your Body Can’t Cash, a heady old fashioned that could send anyone flying into a crisis situation. Yell “Show Me The Money” from Jerry Maguire and you’ll get a dark rum daiquiri.
With his Magnolia co-star Julianne Moore drinking Ketel One in the movie, there’s the cosmo cocktail called You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling filled with the vodka. For something a little on-the-nose, there’s a negroni called You Can’t Handle The Vermouth, which is (duh) inspired by A Few Good Men.
The cocktail menu is pretty limited for now, but that could change in the future — hopefully inspired by more of good ol’ Tommy’s later work. Hell yes to concoctions that pay tribute to An Interview With the Vampire, Edge of Tomorrow and Tropic Thunder; a firm no to drinks involving The Mummy. Yech.
Risky Business is at 37 Duxton Hill
