This slick, contemporary space sits in the heart of the trendy Rittenhouse neighborhood (and just caddy-cornered from the park), making it an excellent place to pop in for a drink and A-plus people-watching after work. Grab a seat at the bar or at one of the booths or high tops that line the periphery and make your way through an inventive craft cocktail list that changes with the season and features fresh ingredients such as herbs and cold-pressed juices. The Good Night and Good Luck is a particular—and boozy—standout, concocted with rye whiskey, drambuie, carpano antica, laphroaig hellfire shrub and absinthe. You’ll also find a beer and cider on draft or in cans, a selection of wines and a dozen varieties of amari. On the food front, you’ve got Mediterranean-style small plates such as salmon croquettes, Spanish rock octopus and beets and burrata for dinner. In the spring of 2018, a.bar also began offering breakfast service from 7am to noon that features Rival Bros. coffee, pastries and a selection of sandwiches from High Street on Market.
