    Nice and intimate atmosphere, great for a cocktail date! The cocktails with egg white are interesting, but I prefer the sweeter ones. The entrance is very hidden so you gotta be looking for it.

    Best cocktails in the city. Never had a bad drink here. Go on a week night or Sunday to avoid the crowd. Have some drinks then cross the street to Big Star and grab some tacos.

    Step inside the intimate space and peruse through an extensive handcrafted drink menu that includes vodka, tequila, rum, brandy and portable bitters creations. Try the Juliet & Romeo or the Sazerac.

    You feel like you're in a Tim Burton movie as you enter this beautifully absurd space with high top chairs and romantic lighting. Their egg white cocktails, for example the Oofta, are delicious.

    Violet Hour exudes a 1920s speakeasy vibe. While the drinks are innovative, the bar remains old-school: Don’t be surprised if the bartender gives you a sideways look when you pull out your cell phone. Leggi tutto
