The Patterson House
The Patterson House is a great cocktail bar in Midtown with some very specific rules. No phones are allowed near the bar, except for a quick text, and you can only order drinks from a server. So you may have to wait for a seat, but it shouldn’t be long and you’ll be happy you did since most of the cocktails are around $12 and include things like celery bitters, orgeat, and black pepper. It’s a great place to go with a few friends when you want to drink something unique, eat some tater tots, and have a conversation without having to yell.
