    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.

    Spicy Knees cocktail is everything you want and everything you need. It says all the right things at exactly the right time. And it cost almost nothing and you dont know why.

    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.

    Make sure you really think about your decision before saying yes to putting the habanero infused vodka into the bloody mary
