Does Arcade have great bar eats because they have great drinks, or is it the other way around? Regardless, Christopher Ware, formerly with Bohanan’s Bar, has crafted a noteworthy menu that boasts vintage libations, such as the Bumble Bee and Ramos Gin Fizz, along with modern creations that pay homage to the cocktail scene’s growth by featuring drinks created by other local bartenders including Jeret Peña, Steven Raul Martín and Matty Gee. And then there’s the fact that Ware managed to whip up a namesake cocktail for the restaurant that, while pink, makes it perfectly acceptable for dudes to sip some bubbles. We’ll drink to that.
