The Dish:

Your choice of vodka or gin heats up this cool mix of ginger, cucumber, lime, mint and soda. The house collins mix incorporates paper-thin slices of ginger and cucumber to give you a little something to chew on while you drink. You really must love ginger to appreciate one of those bites, but the cucumber is like a fascinating, mild pickle lurking at the bottom of your glass.

Key Ingredients: Gin or vodka, lemon, lime, ginger, mint, cucumber, soda

The Place:

The bar staff tend to be a little weird, but the live jazz is usually excellent, and the Neapolitan pizza is the best in town. Although it gets busy, it's rarely challenging to find a table and there are two large booths by the stage, as well as a smaller one tucked into a dark corner back by the bar.

Insider Secrets:

There is often comedy instead of jazz on Monday nights and the vibe is very different than the other six nights of the week, so consider yourself warned.
