Sometimes you’re looking to sit down over quality cocktails, a little bit of food, and ideally some warm chocolate chip cookies, which is exactly what you’ll find at Scofflaw. The drinks here are gin-focused and all really good, but Scofflaw also serves good food. It’s a great place to hang out for a date or even sit with a couple of friends. And as if that wasn’t enough, they serve free, freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies at midnight. Life would be a lot cooler if everyone did that.
