Essay question: Why should I drink here?
OK, we’ll grant you: Artisan’s Table is more restaurant than bar. But the cozy separate bar area deserves props all on its own. There’s a killer cocktail list and an above-average bar bites menu, a good selection of wines and craft bottles for those who aren’t ready for the strong stuff, and it’s happy hour all day: four specialty cocktails plus bloodys, mimosas, sangria, and selected wine and drafts, and a special snack menu, all priced at just $5. It’s a godsend for CBD workers in search of a fun Friday lunch, downtown partiers meeting up before the night’s debauch begins, or anyone who’s sick of pairing boring-ass peanuts and wings with their thoughtfully chosen craft cocktail or Belgian sour ale.
