Named after the deep blue juniper berry, which is used to give gin its distinctive flavor, this upscale bar taps into both that visual color palette and that boozy focus. Here, off-duty midtowners can find happy-hour specials like Ithaca Flower Power IPA and blueberry-lemon gin-and-tonics, which are soaked up with culture-crossing barstool eats like lobster tacos, cheese-steak spring rolls and edamame hummus.
Venue says: “Happy Hour 6 days a week from 4:00 - 8:00! $6.00 prosecco, red/white wine flower power IPA, blue moon & rosemary infused gin and tonic!”
