Two weeks after it repealed its prohibition and started offering liquor during red light hours (Thursday to Saturday 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.), Vena's Fizz House has been serving up cocktails and mocktails alike, along with light fare from a new dinner menu. Select from a set drinks list, pick the brain of a bartender for recommendations, or choose your own adventure by adding your shot of choice to an existing non-alcoholic beverage.
With a huge selection of bitters and bar toys — some made in house — the retail side will also make any home mixologist feel like a kid in a candy store. It's a great place to follow up a visit to the bar, as most items are used by the bartenders and available to sample. Check out patrons of Vena's enjoying both potent potables and sumptuous sodas in the photos above.
