The mirrored bar is the centerpiece of Occidental Grill & Seafood, and its bartenders craft specialty cocktails that change with the seasons. From a bar stool or from your dinner table, order specialty cocktails including mixtures that are aged in-house in oak barrels. Like an aged whiskey or rye, these drinks take on the flavors of the barrel they are aged in; on our visit, these included a curiously strong Manhattan with Maker's Mark whisky, vermouth, bitters and brandied cherries.
The bar also includes a seasonally changing list of handcrafted cocktails. On our visit, we complemented our meal with a mellow blood orange margarita and a maple Manhattan that augmented the classic with a sweet kick of Vermont maple syrup. The bar also features a bonus for dieters: a list of cocktails that clock in at fewer than 100 calories.
