This downtown bar was the victim of a brutal flooding in early 2016 and took months to reopen (damn those wintertime burst pipes), which means it’s your drinking duty to patronize it frequently. You’ll hardly suffer: JM Curley is cocktail nirvana. Concoctions both new-fangled (the CInnablunt, made up of cinnamon-infused mezcal, cynar, and coffee liqueur) and classic (their whiskey smash is to die for) get blended up in front of you by hipster-mustachioed mixologists. For lower-key types, there’s a potent beer list, but when cocktails this great start at nine bucks, why play it safe?
