Between the music, lighting, and low-hanging chandeliers, not to mention the beer selection and innovative cocktails, this place feels like a high-end hotel bar for queers and is a great spot to end a rowdy bar crawl. I recommend coming here if you want to feel like a rich lesbian who owns a Porsche and a Great Dane (this could just be a me thing, who’s to say?). If you end up at Elixir, please do me a favor and order their homemade pineapple tequila because it’s the best thing I’ve tasted since reemerging post-pandemic.
