In mixology circles, the name Thad Vogler carries major weight. He’s the drink master behind this chic, sleek bar. There’s not a hint of the oft-used vintage decor here—clean, industrial lines and reclaimed wood create the sophisticated, modern atmosphere. The heated outdoor patio is also a rare draw. As for the cocktails, they’re created from hard-to-source small batch liquors; the bar food is darn good too, a mix of Northern European and Californian cuisine.
