Negroni fever is hitting several Windsor cocktail bars this week as they celebrate the deliciously bitter drink.

In 2013 Imbibe Magazine launched Negroni Week as a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charitable causes around the world.

Since then, Negroni Week has grown from about 120 participating venues to thousands of venues around the world, and to date, the initiative has raised over $4 million for charitable organizations.

This week, here are some restaurants and bars across the city are celebrating one of the world’s most iconic cocktails this week.


This amazing little cocktail bar in downtown Windsor has really taken the lead for Negroni Week. They’ll be serving several Negroni-esque creations alongside the classics. If you’re not into Negronis, fear not as they’ll have something for you too.

Maiden Lane will also be providing a portion of sales to the Windsor Humane Society.
