Drinks: Upscale bar

  • Your drink order may warrant a theatrical shake or stir. It’s acceptable under the circumstances. You are after all at Asheville’s Best Upscale bar. So put on your tie. Or your fedora. The low lighting bounces off the multitude of reflective surfaces making everything and everyone glitter. The upstairs patio brings out the urbanite in anyone. But it’s the drinks and the glassware for that matter that complete the picture. The classic and nouveau cocktails are perfectly chilled and garnished with real cherries not the electric red maraschinos you’re used to. — K.S.
