Percy’s & Co. feels like that one friend you have who’s a little too much into LARP-ing successfully renovated a vintage brick building to look like an old-timey apothecary. There are plants sprouting out of test tubes secured by clamps, old tchotchkes you’d find on a deteriorating sunken ship, and cocktails that sound like chemistry experiments and have ingredients like sage-infused bourbon and benedictine. Hang out on the back covered patio, order anything off of the Southern-style menu (get the cajun popcorn), and hope that that same friend doesn’t bring up the renaissance fair again.
