Bar-X • A speakeasy theme, cocktails made with care and celebrity co-owner Ty Burrell are just some of the reasons the new and improved Bar-X is a local favorite. The bar dates back to 1933, established after Prohibition was repealed. Once cash and beer-only, Bar-X is now known for its handcrafted cocktails that start at $9. The care the bartenders take in making the drinks leads to a longer wait and on weekends when the bar is crowded. The lines can be long and laborious. But it's worth the wait, as there isn't a bad drink at Bar-X. The Moscow Mule is the signature offering, but requires a security deposit on the copper mug.
