The chalkboard cocktail menu at Copycat Co. is one of the more captivating ways to showcase a range of house libations. The brightly drawn lineup may showcase a family tree of takes on classic staples such as a Manhattan or a lineup of season specialties, for instance. The full written menu breaks down cocktails into core categories to help you navigate a world of Smashes, Gimlets and Martinis, while concocting your own preferred methodology. With only a handful of beer and wine selections are offered, this place is about the cocktails—oh, and cheap pot stickers, bao and skewers.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: Your Manhattan, Old Fashioned, Martini or Smash your way, as per the menu’s helpful educational breakdown
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Skip the street-level area and head straight up the staircase to the sleek, dark vibes of the upstairs bar and lounge.
