Best New Cocktail Bar 


Anyplace that has a drink called Whiskey in Church is all right by us, and even though it sounds like something a decades-old dive would hawk, it's actually at one of the fancier Nouveau Mission bars. Utensil-free %ABV is famed for its burger and its falafel lamb dog, but really, it's the cocktails that keep those buns glued to their barstools. House-bottled experiments infuse in the corners as patrons suck down unique concoctions such as Lefty's Fizz (mezcal, lime, grapefruit shrub, dry Curacao and egg white) or a Mumbai Mule (made with saffron vodka). Not all $12 cocktail bars are created equal. Some are even open before school gets out.
