Cocktails at 116 Crown
After a week of more record snow (and shoveling), I decided
to reward myself with a fun night out—well, for a 30+ year-old, a night out
usually signifies happy hour and dinner so don’t expect anything wild. Although, stay tuned because Asha and I
have plans to go salsa dancing in the coming month.
Last Friday, I decided to check out 116 Crown, a bar that
wasn’t around when I was a student.
And I gotta say I was impressed.
The décor and ambiance are modern and trendy with a sophisticated, yet
relaxed vibe. It was definitely a
cool place to grab a drink and some appetizers.
I opted for a glass of wine, but that was a mistake—not
because the wine selection wasn’t good, but because the mixed drinks looked
amazing. We were sitting at the
bar watching the drinks being made and they looked really delicious. I am going back for some of those. Check out the cocktail menu online.
We also ordered a plate of cheeses and salami, which was
very good. They have large plates in
addition to starters, sandwiches, and pizzas. Most of what I saw in
neighboring tables looked good. I whiffed a
plate of truffle fries that came by and I am going back for some of that
Make sure to check out some of their specials, which I found
online. They offer ½ price wine
bottles on Sundays. And they also
offer cocktail classes—I wouldn’t mind learning how to make some of those
delicious-looking cocktails (which I am sure also taste delicious based on
comments I overheard).
So if all else fails on a winter day, or you don't feel like taking part in any winter activities (and you are of age), head over to 116 Crown for a drink like I did.
