Co-owners and operators Justin Lavenue and Dennis Gobis have created something both impressive and accessible with the Roosevelt Room. A giant chalkboard above the bar reads as the history of cocktails, with drinks categorized by era from Early Years (pre-1880) to Modern Classics (2000s-present). But there’s also a signature cocktail menu that’s wildly inventive, with a selection of noteworthy concoctions such as the aromatic Cigar Box (mezcal, smoked black tea syrup, lavender bitters, tobacco bitters, flamed cinnamon stick). Exceptional customer service is one of the hallmarks of this bar, and an evening spent here can happily turn into an educational lesson on noteworthy spirits. One surefire way to become a regular: Snag their booklet that lists every single drink; once you make your way through it, you’ll get a plaque on their wall.
