The best lounges don’t have to try. No need for the ubiquitous liquor company-sponsored nights, promo girls putting in weekly appearances or killing themselves to stay relevant.
DR!NK LOUNGE & BISTRO (yes, the formerly know as Drink Wine Bar) just works.
Of course, it helps that Dr!nk boasts a brand new look and menu that plays nice with your wallet and taste buds. The expanded menu is cleverly divided into eat your greens, bellyful (pasta dishes), thin crust pizzas (always a huge plus for us), and soup, tapas and cheese.
Popping in for Dr!nk’s opening festivities a few weeks ago, we sampled the Sabi Tuna Sandwich, a very satisfying Beet Salad and several tasty tapas including dumplings, bruschetta and mintylamballs.
We happily made a meal of the tuna (steak) sandwich, which was served with a red cabbage slaw. Lightly crusted with sesame seeds and perfectly seared to our liking (medium-rare), make it one of your must-try items at Dr!nk. Next up on our visit are Dr!nk’s thin crust pizzas with toppings like chorizo and roasted vegetables. Link to our Dr!nk Pictures.
Thankfully, Dr!nk still puts on great events like its recent “Pavement Cooler Party,” which made us wish that we didn’t have a prior commitment.
Nevertheless every time we pass Dr!nk, we crane our necks to check the vibe and plot our next visit. Pavement cooler parties and all, it’s just our speed.
