In mixology circles, the name Thad Vogler carries major weight. He’s the drink master behind this chic, sleek cocktail bar, which opts for a look of modern sophistication with clean industrial lines and reclaimed wood. The heated outdoor patio is also a rare draw. As for the cocktails, they’re created from hard-to-source small-batch liquors; the food—which goes far beyond bar snacks with offerings like burgers, spaghetti, and baked salmon—is darn good too, a mix of Northern European and Californian cuisine.
