Location: Whitfield at the Ace Hotel, 120 S. Whitfield St., East Liberty
Ambiance: Classy lounge meets hip-kid hangout with plenty of company
What I drank: Dirty gin martini
Hot take: There’s almost nothing like a bracing, classic gin martini to take the edge off any day. Having tasted many around the city, this bar manages to get the right balance of botanicals, salt and vermouth to make it perfect.
