    Fireplaces are trending this week, and 1886 has the perfect hearth to cozy up to with specialty cocktail. You can't go wrong with a Moscow Mule, but don't overlook their signature Smoking Jacket.

    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.

    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

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

    Nice laid back place, specialty cocktails, tasty entrees, and tater tots are a must ( crunchy and not greasy)

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

    Marcos Tello and Aidan Demarest have created an outstanding cocktail list, including the excellent Honey Nut Old Fashioned and the Staten Island.

    The drinks are great but it can be tough to get the attention of servers, who also work the dining rooms.

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

    You haven't had a true beer cocktail if you haven't had one made by Brady Wiese!

    Apparently the Honey Nut Old Fashioned is the most popular cocktail. It's made with the peanut infused bourbon.

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