The Drift is a new bar from the people behind The Commodore and El Cortez. Unlike its rowdier predecessors, so far the vibe at this place is pretty low-key. The theme is something like a cabin upstate, but only because there’s a lot of wood and taxidermy. Otherwise, as of now it’s just a pretty normal bar with some pretty average bar food.
