Located in the old Genever space in Historic Filipinotown, Shim Sham is a casual neighborhood bar that makes being a casual neighborhood bar look easy. There’s a big horseshoe-shaped bar ideal for striking up conversations with strangers, a few TVs playing sports, and a drink list where everything from frozen cocktails to boilermaker combos are $13 or under. The extra dirty Mayatini and The Condor, their take on a margarita with a Tajin-covered rim, are both destination cocktails. As in, we’ll happily leave our own neighborhoods to drink them. Keep an eye on their Instagram, too. There’s always a cool pop-up happening on the sidewalk in the event you get hungry.
