Bar Vacilando is the vibey cocktail bar that must be a total secret, because it’s typically pretty empty. But this works to your advantage for any situation where you’d prefer to be able to hear your conversation and not wait 20 minutes for a gimlet. The cocktails are also good (get the Honey Badger) and priced suspiciously reasonably, and there’s a hidden back patio that looks like an Anthropologie photoshoot waiting to happen.
