  • The scene is Americana and the cocktails are savory and eclectic, employing everything from kale juice in the Garden Variety Margarita to Szechuan peppers in the Track Town Fizz.
  • Jason Mendenhall, the bar's mixologist, makes his own bitters, preserves and colatry the San Fran Sprout, made with his soda and fernet-branca, an Italian liqueur.
  • Great weekday spot. Live jazz! All the signature cocktails are delicious (I especially love the garden variety marg) and the food is good too. Packed beyond belief and stoopid on the weekends.
  • Definitely grab their only stirred drink: Angela's Arch. Mezcal, rye, malbec reduction, Aperol, and bitters. Perfect.
  • Two words: Pernil Romero. So good I couldn't take a picture soon enough. Trust me.
  • Garden Variety Margarita: blue agave blanco tequila, ginger & kale juice, lime juice, agave nectar, smoked sea salt.
  • Moonshine with Apple Wood Smoke? Uh duh. Get this goddamn drink. You're welcome.
  • It's like Brooklyn without the subway ride
  • I Hear Banjos is always a delight.
  • The drinks are very good and the bartenders are incredibly friendly. Get here before 9 pm on weekends because it gets crowded.
  • The chicken liver bacon sandwich is out of control. You need one.
  • Smoked & Roasted and I Hear Banjos
  • I just had a margarita with kale juice, moonshine with smoked cinnamon bark, and tecate with Bloody Mary mix. This place is a must!!
  • It smells like a bonfire in here and it's wonderful.
  • Order the chicken liver and applewood bacon sandwich as a snack. You're welcome.
  • Thai Watermelon Collins is a cocktail not to be missed
  • I Hear Banjos is amazing: an apple-y, spicy, old fashioned, served smoky.
  • R.I.P. Banjo Jim's #extinctvenues
  • Happy hour runs Monday to Friday from 4 to 7 PM. Cocktails like a Cucumber Collins and versions of a Sazerac and Margarita - as well as beer and wine are all under $7.
  • The cocktail menu is constantly changing, but you'll always be pleasantly surprised by their unique and seasonal creations. Oh plus they have oysters.
