Writer’s Block Rehab – the wordsmith-inspired cocktail lounge on 1342 Cypress St offers bar seating on the first and third levels, and a second floor “library” for a more comfortable, lounge-type experience. The menu boasts an impressive selection of wine and beer, and creative cocktails like a turmeric pisco sour ($14) and arugula martini ($14).
The Franklin Bar – this subterranean Rittenhouse speakeasy feels like the fanciest neighbourhood bar—just with seriously inventive drinks. Candlelit tables, corner booths and low ceilings make for a cosy atmosphere that’ll have you ordering many-a round. But be forewarned: these delicious cocktails are very boozy.
