Follow the marquee arrow sign to the entrance of this underground Art Deco cocktail lounge in downtown’s Historic Core, then descend the stairs beneath the El Dorado Lofts building. The gorgeous space will make you feel underdressed, but this is a bar for fashionistas and after-work professionals, in addition to those who just want to relax with a beer.
The Drink to Drink: Keep it simple with the E-40, comprised of walnut-infused Nikka Japanese whisky and a pint of Coedo beer. It’s a $10 Boilermaker, but the flavors of each component were taken into consideration to create the perfect pairing.
Know Before You Go: One of the most generous happy hours in town, going until 10 p.m. and offering deals like $2 Miller High Life and Tecate beers.
