DRINK: The Branch and Oxalis

DRINK: The Branch and Oxalis

Occupying prime real estate on a hopping corner in the Bywater, Oxalis is constantly packed to the gills with drinkers and hungry regulars alike looking to grab dinner before a night on the town. The restaurant boasts an impressive selection of both top and bottom shelf liquors, with a particularly robust and respectful selection of plastic cap bourbons that speaks to the penny pincher in all of us. The building’s unusual arrangement of hidden nooks, cozy crannies and honeysuckle-lined cobblestone courtyards creates the delirium of wandering into a boozy, snack-filled Alice in Wonderland maze. If possible, snag a seat outside. A back bar known as The Branch is a seductive retreat, often hosting guest bartenders from across the city to shake specials each Sunday night.

The Drink to Drink: The off-menu Stiletto is a bourbon-based cocktail that manages to be both fruity and full-bodied.

Know Before You Go: The Branch is only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday and offers a completely separate menu from Oxalis.
