Thursday last week, I found my way over to Bergamot where bartenders Paul Manzelli and Kai Gagnon were working. After requesting the Assembly Cocktail on the menu, I asked Kai if the drink was in reference to a Somerville landmark, namely Assembly Square, akin to their Beacon Fix. While Paul was amused by that suggestion and expressed a fondness for what the Assembly Square Mall used to be, Kai commented that it was merely an assembly of three different nations' spirits.
