If you still have your collection of the Chinese Zodiac Beanie Babies (and even if you don’t), you’re going to have a good time at East Trading Company. The signature cocktails here are named after the Zodiac calendar, like The Tiger (kind of like a smoky Old Fashioned), The Sheep (with pisco, absinthe, and paprika), and The Rooster (an Aperol spritz with lemon-berry sage syrup and butterfly pea flower tea). There’s also a back gift shop with Japanese snacks and a Galaga machine.
