Adam Bernbach steers the ship at 2 Birds 1 Stone. Each week, he unveils a new hand-drawn menu featuring at least half a dozen fresh cocktails. While some get brought back, over the course of several years he has unleashed hundreds upon hundreds of different libations to the masses. His inventive cocktails are the main appeal, but the trendy bar becomes a bumping late-night spot on the weekends as well. Its summer Frappe Hour became a citywide sensation, culminating in Fuck It Frosé Week, with hopes that the blended delights would remain this fall, too.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: After taking off its house-made ginger beer from the menu, there were threats of mutiny, according to Bernbach. So nab a cocktail that uses it, such as a seasonal Pimm's Cup.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: The bar is located in the basement underneath Doi Moi. The staircase leading down to it is actually on S Street.
