Down House is one of those wonderful places that wears many hats, and wears them well. From mid-morning coffee to family dinner to a first date, Down House’s simple but well executed cooking and thoughtful bar program make this one of the most well-rounded destinations in the city. Newly appointed beverage director Travis Hinkle has created a thoughtful wine list focused on approachability and value. Cocktails are quirky riffs on classics, and are served morning until the wee hours.

ProTip
Down House's non-alcoholic drinks like the Shirley Temple and Spicy Roy Rogers are delicious whether or not you’re of legal drinking age. If you’re neither toddler nor designated driver, order wine by the quartino, because a glass is never enough.
