One of the first major bars to make downtown a thing again, Seven Grand might not have the buzz it did a few years ago, but no one can deny those extremely strong cocktails and a space that’s always so much bigger than we remember it being. Multiple rooms, billiards, and a secret bar in the back specializing in Japanese whiskey (and complete with a cigar patio ideal for drinking the night away).
