Did you know that it’s possible to spend 7 hours in a bar and not realize it? Well, I haven’t done it in 3-1/2 years but Thursday night proved that it isn’t too difficult to do at the right bar. We ate, we drank, we laughed, and we enjoyed the Libertine Bar quite a bit.
Between the two of us, we tried every drink on the classic cocktail menu and then some – and they were good. The Dark n Stormy, Pimm’s Cup, The Bronx, etc. … all were delightfully different and intriguing (and considerably stronger than expected – watch out for the Aviator!). Matt had the pint of the week so he could have a cool pint glass, but in the end he forgot it (bust).
The staff at Libertine contributed to the fun. They were incredibly outgoing and friendly without crowding us or being annoying. The other thing that contributed to the fun was the AMAZING, nay, delicious food. If I could only have one bar’s hot wing’s for the rest of my life, it would be Libertine’s. Ordinary hot wings these were not, they were pork shanks that FELL off the bone, literally. This plate of food was what dreams are made of and I can’t wait to have them again.
When you visit, make sure you clear your schedule because, yes, it is that great!
