I'm not a fancy writer... just a girl that likes a good drink.


Next Door Lounge

I've already been out to Next Door Lounge when it first opened, but they invented me back to try their new happy hour menu. At first glance, we were pleased to see there was more food items compared to the old menu. There weren't as many cocktails choices compared to last time, but I'd rather have more food than drink options. Even though I love my cocktails, it's really the food that brings me in. After all, don't we all need good food to absorb the alcohol??? Another plus is that their happy hour cocktails are just $5-6. Definitely a good deal.

Next Door's happy hour is Tuesday through Friday from 5-8pm. I LOVE that it goes till 8pm!! And they also have a late night happy hour Tues.-Thurs. from midnight-1:30pm.

So between our two trips, here's what we ate. And there wasn't one dish we didn't like. Definitely good quality food for happy hour!

Shrimp Ceviche - $5
spinach, walnuts, roasted apple, mozzarella, goat cheese, fresh herbs
Loved it! Very tasty.

 Crostini - $3
Roasted red and white beets, carrots, parsnip, 
turnip, celery root, and goat cheese

Spinach and Goat Cheese Flatbread - $6
spinach, walnuts, roasted apple, mozzarella, goat cheese, fresh herbs

Heirloom Tomato and Spinach Flatbread - $6

Smoked Pulled Pork - $6
with guacamole and srispy onions - served with apple coleslaw (not shown but it was GREAT!)

Sliders - $6
served with Sweet Potato Fries

And they even have dessert on the happy hour menu. I definitely preferred the Creme Brulee over the Pumpkin Pie. It was a bit flat.

Creme Brulee - $6

Pumpkin Pie - $6

For happy hour drinks, NDL offers $4 beers and wine, and the following cocktails:

Whiskey Sour $6
Old Forester Bourbon, lemon, sugar, egg whites

Moscow Mule - $5
Vodka, ginger beer

 Daiquiri - $5
Matusalem Plantino, lime, sugar

I just LOVE the drink prices!

So between the low drink prices and great food... Next Door Lounge has won me over compared to the last time I was there. I will definitely be back.
