Borgata’s new cocktail bar and lounge, Level One offers guests the opportunity to purchase a piece of history: A hand-signed check by Babe Ruth, alongside a long pour of McCallan scotch-whisky and an antique Victrola record player! The drink, called THE BAMBINO, retails for $40,000!
The concept is that when a guest buys the drink (there is only one of one), it will be brought out on the Victrola and it will play an old song (maybe “Ain’t She Sweet” by Ben Bernie & His Orchestra as that was the most popular song in 1927, which is widely considered Babe’s best baseball season) paired with a long pour of the 1940 McCallan Fine & Rare Scotch-whisky. Scotch whisky is widely reported as Babe’s favorite drink.
