There’s no cocktail menu at INK, the dimly-lit 20-seat cocktail bar in the back of 8arm. The bartenders just ask questions about what you want to drink at that moment - refreshing or spirit-forward, earthy or herbaceous, clear or brown liquor. You may be wary of receiving an interrogation when all you want is a cocktail, but they’re good at guiding you through the process gently and by candlelight. Whether you end up with a daiquiri variation with aged rum, blueberry-thyme syrup, and lime, or an absinthe Rusty Nail, they often know what you’ll enjoy drinking even better than you do. If you need a snack, their menu of tinned seafood, like sweet potato and tuna, is worth digging into alongside whatever concoctions land on your table.
