A cozy cocktail bar with a consistently killer soundtrack and unpretentious vibe, Bar Tonique slings classic drinks and updated favorites with equal fervor—and at prices that will please even the most ardent penny pincher. Each day of the week corresponds to a different $5 special, including Moscow Mules each Thursday and the bar’s notorious bacon Bloody Mary on Saturday mornings. For those who are non-drinkers, Tonique is also one of the few bars in the city to serve a thoughtful “temperance” menu of alcohol-free concoctions and sodas.
The Drink to Drink: The Saint Claude, which combines rum with lemon juice and a double hit of cherry.
Know Before You Go: A recently launched Wednesday midnight happy hour will feature a fresh range of craft cocktail laybacks, high-end Jell-O shots and other party favorites, catering to folks looking to drink into the wee hours.
