|The Paradise Theatre - A festive sloe gin fizz.|
I know what you're thinking, there are a handful of places with craft cocktails served in vintage glasses that call themselves a "speakeasy" but Paradise Theatre is definitely different. It's a speakeasy in the most authentic sense of the term: entrance is by approved admittance, it's a secret location and it just might be open in the wee hours. It's also where the local bartenders hang out, during their off hours.
|The Crystal Ball - Apple brandy, lemon juice, grenadine, |
and a "crystal ball" of ice
|The Grand Illusion - A gimlet with mint, patterned after the |
forest theme of the Grand Illusion cover.
The group had a selection of cocktails - cleverly themed Styx cocktails that is. The ambiance is fun, welcoming and as midnight rolled around, more and more patrons began filling the room.
|The Pieces of Eight - Their variation of the Ward 8 (Bourbon, |
orange juice, lemon juice, grenadine, and mint)
This is truly a passion project... having a penchant for great craft cocktails and you guessed it, Styx. Overall, it's just a really fun place to hang out. Plus R&A are great hosts.
The news is that Paradise Theatre will come to close on August 16th. But luckily for us they are offering a happy hour special until then!
Here are the details: Paradise Theatre is only open on Fridays, doors open at 11pm.
