Small VictoryThe tiny cocktail bar Small Victory opened in a sequestered nook of a parking garage (you read that correctly), replacing divey Mike’s Pub. Mike’s undoubtedly had its fans, but finding cocktails made with such care and so little pretense is pretty popular too. The bar, in a narrow, shotgun space that's all low lights and exposed brick, was the brainchild of a couple of bar veterans who apply their experience and creativity to Small Victory. A small food menu that includes a great selection of cured meats and cheeses means you don’t have to wander off for a bite after your second Manhattan.
