    Really great Bloody Mary with house-infused vodka, all the perfect topping. Maybe a bit pricey?

    Infused liquor cocktails are pretty good for the price. Very casual. Good place to grab a drink earlier in the evening. Authentic neighborhood vibe.

    A daytime coffee shop evolves into a comfortable bar after dark, offering fabulous drinks and a party-garage vibe. The Bloody Mary – deliciously pickled, rimmed with Creole seasoning – is a must.

    Embodies grungy, chic vibe of East Sixth. Quiet, dark. I went when it was raining and sat outside. Not necessarily best for studying due to the dark lighting, but a great place to chill. Laid back.
