WHY HERE: Few neighborhood bars make cocktails with the attention to detail of Quarter. The casual vibe “hides” the meticulous bartending going on in drinks like the Two Bits (dry bourbon, wheated bourbon, Angostura bitters, Peychaud’s bitters, almond and an orange twist).
WHY NOW: Now more than a decade old, the bar still churns out great drinks with some rotating seasonally. Plus there are pub quiz nights on the second and fourth Mondays of each month. Bonus: The outdoor garden is now scaffolding-free and getting ready for summer.
