Located in Wilton Manors, Apt 9F is a cozy queer-owned lounge serving classic cocktails along with some small bites. They make a mighty fine vieux carré and sazerac, but we really love their paper tiger cocktail made with gin and Becherovka, a Czech bitter liqueur. It tastes like a gimlet made for a cigar daddy, which you may get to meet at the bar if you don’t get serenaded by an impromptu rendition of Let It Go. The food menu is pretty simple, but the dishes are all thoughtfully made. If you are trying to eat, be sure to pair the turkey meatballs with the baked goat cheese. The meatballs are tender, rich, and swimming in a puddle of nutty salsa verde. The goat cheese is smothered in a homemade apricot and peppadew jam that’s tart, mildly sweet, and has just the right amount of kick. Add a little bit of both to a slice of the accompanying crusty bread.
