    Design My Night Says…

    This is somewhere to dip, not too deeply, into your own pocket for well-executed cocktails, Boulevardier, Matador, and Army & Navy (a Beefeater gin and almond syrup Sour). Sample too the dark warmth of Black Spice, a peppery pick-me-up of Rittenhouse 100 rye whiskey and dry sherry. Charcuterie and cheese platters help alleviate hunger pangs; accompany them with draught craft ales from Neckstamper and Purity breweries, or the quirky yet accessible wine list. An on-site bottle shop adds to the appeal so you can take home most of what you please as does the weeny walled garden at the rear.

Sample too the dark warmth of Black Spice, a peppery pick-me-up of Rittenhouse 100 rye whiskey and dry sherry. Charcuterie and cheese platters help alleviate hunger pangs; accompany them with draught craft ales from Siren and Purity, or punchy Spanish house red. An on-site bottle shop adds to the appeal, as does the weeny walled garden.
