After that, the Bronx became so popular that they had to start ordering oranges by the crate. In terms of history, the Bronx's played an important role by blazing the trail for fruit juices in the bar industry. By the way, when Waldorf Astoria moved to its new address, the Mens Bar moved with it, so you can still try the original Bronx in New York today.
