Relaxed venue for well-made cocktails, both traditional and creative. Do as its lead mixologist professes: “drink less but better.” Weekends tend to be busier and livelier with DJs providing musical entertainment to go along with your delicious libation.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Casual garb works best here.
GO HERE WITH
A few friends for a drink while catching up; a good, off-the-cuff type place
During the week, mellow locals are the patrons of choice. During the weekend, however, the crowd, with encouragement from the DJ, turns more festive.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Drinks are well balanced and made with fresh ingredients.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The décor: nondescript decoration is neither bad nor good, just bland.
GOOD TO KNOW
DJ on the weekends creates a festive mood. There’s a collection of antique bitters dating back to the 19th century.
