Signature cocktails that incorporate house-made infusions, tinctures and kombucha. There are tweaked classics, too, like a Pimm’s Cup made with a scotch-based Pimm’s the bar makes in-house. There’s a stocked bar, plus a short wine list that includes some low-intervention reds and Lambrusco. Local craft beer rounds out the menu.
Keeping things simple, the menu features nothing but olives and East Coast oysters.
Pass through the art gallery and event space and down a passageway to reach the sort-of secret cocktail bar. Low-key and industrial with exposed concrete, brick and pipes, the the space was built to resemble an artist’s loft. Coming soon: two upper floors with workshop space for artists.
