Baker’s is a nice neighborhood bar in Sunset Hill where you should go if you want to impress a date. They have a cozy L-shaped marble counter and a friendly staff considering how busy it gets. You might have to cram in a random corner or listen to the conversations of six different people around you, but coming here makes for an exciting night out. We’re big fans of The Ultimate Ninja cocktail, which has tequila, lemon, blackberry, sage, and ginger beer.
