Ration & Dram
With its two full bars, earth and metal decor, and two airy patios nestled amongst the trees, this multi-level industrial Arizona Lofts space in Kirkwood / Edgewood is one of our favorite new warm weather hangouts. Ration & Dram's Andy Minchow (a star mixologist and founding partner of Holeman & Finch) envisioned "a family-friendly neighborhood spot that people can walk or bike to, so it's not just a cocktail bar." The seasonally-based Southern fare menu is a quirky mix of bar food and fine dining entrees, with an emphasis on sourcing local and presenting healthy options. There's also a well-curated list of draft and bottled craft and imported beers, wines by the glass and bottle, creative cocktails, fresh juices and house-made sodas.
