    Best Moscow Mule I've ever had. Their signature cocktails are very cool too. Loved the Apple Pie hot toddy.

    Outside the craftsman house there's a stone-hewn fireplace you can perch next to while you sip. Their seasonal cocktails are always worth a try Read more

    FYI: They went to the Buffalo Trace distillery and made their own 1886 batch.

    It's good that Marcos Tello is still consulting here. There are aged cocktails, spirits served neat and some spectacular presentations. Consider the BBC, a basil-infused collins.

    For an uber Sazerac ask for the off menu Ursulines with Cafe during Monde infused rye, demerara sugar and Creole bitters. Amazing.

    The Tycoon is amazing. Rye whiskey, honey, ginger, and some other stuff from their little syrup bottles.

    Order the don Lockwood if you can't decide between scotch or whiskey. It's both with a touch of maple syrup. Delicious.
