Somehow, it’s Friday already. Celebrating a holiday during the middle of the week is pretty bizarre — it feels like two mini weeks sandwiched in between three weekends. I’m not sure why I’m complaining.
I spent Tuesday of this week at a brand-spanking-new bar, in the tenderloin (so take a cab), called Tradition. The occasion was a birthday celebration; the location couldn’t be more perfect to kick off an American holiday.
The bar is one of Bourbon & Branch‘s spinoffs, as it’s casual but maintains its strong reputation for serving classic, well-made cocktails. The dark wood finishing, lofty ceilings and suspender-outfitted hipster staff give the place a Brooklyn vibe. Overall, it’s a pretty cool spot and worth visiting at least once.
We started off with scorpion bowls, which were among an array of tropical cocktails. The best thing about Tradition: the menu has something for everyone, with different themed traditional bar menus on each page. Make sure to reserve a booth to get the maximum experience. Happy Weekend!
