Southern Craft, now open around the corner from Southern Nights, serves damn good cocktails



Essay question: At this new cocktail bar around the corner from Southern Nights, the drinks come strong – and the people, what few were there, were friendly. (They haven’t been open long.) But if the first pour of the night is an indication of anything – it was frothy – it’s that you shouldn’t order beer in a place that serves damn good cocktails, like the “Spice Girl,” in the first place.
