Town offers artisan cocktails along with their beer and wine selection, able to quench any boozy craving. The mixologists are highly skilled, whipping up both classic cocktails and martinis as well as totally unique concoctions. The atmosphere is trendy and hip, with quirky touches like menus made on a typewriter and modern art and jeweled ceramic elephants as décor. The food menu features seasonally rotating dishes that use only locally sourced ingredients, so it’s always fresh.

Manifest, located right in the middle of Chinatown, defines the trendy urban bar. The exposed brick walls are covered in artsy photos and beautiful graphic art pieces sitting over modern, cubic furniture that’s illuminated by the light coming through the open ceiling. The mixologists’ immense talents are evident in every one of the exceptional cocktails, from classic old fashioned to outrageous new creations.
