Opened in late May by the owners of Top Pot Doughnuts, Sun Liquor is a ready-made rendezvous spot on a relatively sleepy street. The dark, cozy lounge is outfitted with the kind of vintage details that have made Top Pot (located next door) such a success, but here they're more exotic. Bamboo bar stools, wall-climbing tin flowers that glow red, and tasteful Southeast Asian accents set the scene for serious drinking. Serious meaning top-shelf liquors, hand-picked herbs, and freshly squeezed juices in concoctions like the Punetazo, whose multiple rums are topped with a float of 151 and a tiny orchid (a garnish that appears on every drink). They move a lot of mojitos, and the house specialty is the mai tai, but you'll find beer, too, in the spectacular vintage refrigerator, a salvaged-piece-of-junk-turned-centerpiece. There are even mini bowls of warm cashews to munch on. Cocktail culture never really goes away, but Sun gets retro just right.
Sun Liquor has the best atmosphere, first off. Every bartender there has skill, knowledge and wit. Best, though, is that Sun Liquor remains a wonderful secret due to its locale. Those high-fiving, backward cap wearing dudes that destroy so many great bars will never find this place.... thank god.
Mixology at it's finest. Fresh squeezed juices, house made bitters, and a cocktail artfully crafted just to your liking. Try anything with cucumber, grapefruit, or ginger beer. Take a sip, sit back, and enjoy what a well-made cocktail is supposed to taste like.
