Speakeasy $$$

Hands down my favorite speakeasy.  Patent Pending opened in June 2018 and has some of the most interesting cocktails I've ever seen (and they change seasonally).  You enter through a coffee shop door and there will be a woman standing there taking names of walk-ins (if they don't have space, they'll text you when a spot opens up).  I'd go for a date night or post-dinner drink and probably only one person if it's a weekend night.  I had the Summer of 1896 which had mezcal, Jamaican rum, yuzukosho, pineapple, cilantro, and lime.  Hell freaking yes.
