Left Door

Perfect For: Action at the Bar First/Early in the Game Dates

Left Door is a small-ish room in an unmarked house on S Street, and it’s our favorite cocktail bar in the city. Like the outside, the indoor space isn’t anything fancy. There’s a nice marble bar and some exposed brick - but more importantly, the drinks here are really good. There’s a long cocktail menu, but the bartenders will also make you a personalized drink if you tell them about your likes, dislikes, hopes, and dreams. Be warned, though, there’s a decent chance they’ll also successfully convince you to take a shot(s) of some unpronounceable spirit you’ve never heard of.
