Tropical Nights at Manuela’s Garden Bar
Time Out says
Every Friday night, from 5:30 to 9pm, you can step into the art gallery’s Garden Bar to find eight tiki-inspired cocktails (about $15 each) along with a similarly breezy beer menu with selections like Tiki Time Tropical Wheat and Stem Hibiscus Cider. You’ll find some tiki standards like mai tais during Tropical Nights, plus the option to up the refreshment with sparkling options for the daquiris and mescal-based piña colada milk punch.
On the food side, look out for plates like chili de arbol chicken, plus garlic shrimp and pencil cobb grits. Though Manuela proper accepts reservations, the Garden Bar only takes walk-ins (and is open for non-Tropical Nights on Saturdays and Sundays from 2 to 9pm).
