Von’s 1000 Spirits is true to its name - it’s a restaurant with a massive bar and tons of drink options. They have great sourdough pasta and pizza, and excellent cocktails. The food gets the job done, but you don’t need to go out of your way for a meal here. Instead, use it for a happy hour or a last-ditch lunch after day-drinking downtown. Stick around to catch them spin a wheel every hour to decide the drink special.
