Back Bar at Young Joni
Back Bar at Young Joni is a speakeasy that feels like a 1970s basement, complete with a reel-to-reel tape deck behind the bar and pizza served on retro stoneware. Look for the red light in the alley, settle into the sofa, and order a drink inspired by specific episodes of classic and modern television shows.
We like the rum and aquavit-based Stranger Things S1 E8 (you know, the one where Eleven and Mike kiss), but there are also several well-balanced non-alcoholic cocktails, like the Supermarket Sweep, made with fermented Seville orange, black lime, dandelion root, and bee pollen.
There are some wild pizzas on the menu, like the Perfect Pickle Pie, a so-weird-it’s-good version of a Minnesota State Fair specialty, and the Umami Mama, which is topped with mushrooms, cheese, and a dash of soy sauce.
