Vodka, Recipes, The Bar
“This place was awesome! My sister and I had come in to wait until a wedding across the street started. The atmosphere is quiet and chill. The actual place is very clean and sort of like a factory scene. We ordered 2 cocktails; Basic AF and Notorious F.I.G. both were pretty good. We then ordered a flight of infused vodka; jalapeño, sun-dried tomato, banana, and cucumber. All very good, my favorite was the sun-dried tomato, my sisters were the banana. We also ordered a thing of fries; simple but crispy, and not greasy! I highly recommend this spot.” – Jessica O.
