    If coming from out of town, stay next door at the quaint Hotel Rex. After a night of "What's next?", you'll be glad you did. So many great drinks that you'll want to sample the ENTIRE menu!

    The bartenders here know the value of detail. They’re throwing blackberries into caipirinhas. They’re juicing oranges behind the bar. Grab a caipirinha, here they do it right.
