A good drink goes a long way, but these superb spots up the ante with complex cocktails that whiz, crack and pop—all while tasting great.
Young American The Hi-Res is a tart sipper of rhum, strawberry and bitter lemon.
Bar Biscay The robust Revolver is made with bourbon and coffee liqueur.
Bandit Four types of rum and tropical fruits combine for the fiery Get Lei'd.
The Bamboo Room Mighty enough for two, the Missionary's Downfall is a rum-fueled trip to paradise.
Machine Like many of the cage-topped cocktails here, Caged & Infused makes playing with your food fun.
Le Colonial Tequila and pineapple get a jolt of chile pepper in the Le Piquant.
