About The Parlor at Heights House: Located inside the Heights House Hotel, a 10,000-square-foot pre-Civil War Italianate mansion in Raleigh’s Boylan Heights neighborhood, The Parlor offers Italian-inspired cocktails, an all-Italian wine list, and local craft beer alongside cheese and charcuterie boards. This cocktail is fondly named for manager Will Bryant’s great-grandmother, who was Sicilian. Old Grand-Dad Bourbon is combined with orange-infused Aperol and Cardamaro for a riff on the classic Paper Plane cocktail. A summery cocktail celebrating Italian and Southern roots.
