The Usual

The Usual Bar is anything but what its name suggests. Located on Magnolia Avenue, the quirky smoke-free hub invites its guests to “stop in for a drink and see what it’s like to be guided through a bar by the hand of a truly skilled bartender.” Mixologists specialize in Prohibition-era cocktails, infusing some wild ingredients into their creations, such as bison grass vodka, molasses, various herbs and smoked maple syrup.
