    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.

    Maybe the reason why the Bloody Marys here are quite literally the bomb is because they're made with habanero tequila.

    Coffeehouse by day and moody lounge by night, Rio Rita has a jukebox filled with ’80s hipster hits, comfy couches and Wi-Fi. We recommend the Bloody Mary with one of the infused vodkas.

    Cocktails are the way to go; bloody mary, the "ABC", and the French 75 (by request only) are just delightful. Baristas/bartenders also pull a mean espresso shot or two.

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