Julep review image

Julep

If you’re looking for a low-key cocktail option on Washington Ave., head to Julep. It’s the kind of bar where a cocktail takes five minutes to make, but they’re worth the wait. Also a big plus: Julep doesn’t have the bouncer and dress code situation that’s common at other spots nearby. They serve fancy bar food like seafood towers and cheese boards, but if you’re in need of a snack with your nightcap, get the chicken salad and crackers.
