Sometimes you just need a regular bar. A place where you can fit a few of you, for a last-minute hang, where some people can drink wine and some people can have cocktails and others can have beer. It sounds like a simple idea, but the regular bar is a rarity. Drexler’s is one of them, and it’s great for work drinks, friend group drinks, first date drinks - most regular situations. And probably some irregular ones too.
