Block Party

Whether it’s a long day of chess with a cost consultant or a pre-pro that requires happy hour intervention, it’s crucial to have a rundown on what and where to drink within stumbling distance.

For that, here’s a quick Detour-curated guide to drinking in the hood. Please be advised.

The Misfit
This is pretty much our go-to Hump Day Happy Hour spot. The Basil Gimlet and Yellow Jacket are off the charts. They have Alla Gash Curieux on tap. And the Kale and Quinoa salad is one of the best in town.

Our satellite office. They pour a fantastic martini, have Chamay White on tap, and pretty much every food item on the menu is f*cking awesome.

Upper West
A little more than stumbling distance but a great, open space with a steady rotation of cool artwork. The beer flight sampler is on point and their burger is one of our favorites.

Old School hip hop, top notch cocktails, and a cool local neighborhood vibe.

Clean margaritas and the best carnitas anywhere.  Period.

Ye Olde King’s Head
Pints of Guinness make you strong.
