    The name doesn't lie. Stick to the basics here. My Manhattan was shaken just enough to turn muddy but not enough to actually chill it. Cheap happy hour though!

    Take your pup along for happy hour! Monday to Wednesday are the best days to come with your dog since it usually isn't too crowded.
