This mod bar and lounge feels imported from Los Angeles. The cocktail menu includes six classics (all $12), such as a sidecar and a Singapore sling, while a creative list of special drinks (all $12) matches the Far East–infused food with creations such as the Asian Pear Drop, which uses sake to pack an extra punch. Don’t miss the bar food—four Kobe-beef sliders ($16) are worth the splurge, as are the General Tso’s Chicken Wings ($12), a crispy set of five lollipop-style bites.
