Like a 1920's speakeasy, the outside of Mob Bar doesn't seem like it's made to draw you in… but in the end, that standoffish look is actually what ends up making you interested in seeing what this cool downtown bar has to offer on the inside.
Located within walking distance of the Mob Museum, Mob Bar might be the perfect complement to the Prohibition-era exhibits at the museum. Servers and bartenders are dressed in 1920's outfits, walls display posters from the Golden Age of Hollywood and the drink menu is dominated by classic cocktails.
And Mob Bar's mixologists would be more than happy to fix you up a tasty cocktail indeed. "The Usual," Mob Bar's signature cocktail, is made with Woodford reserve bourbon, Cherry Heering, vermouth and bitters, but every signature libation is delicious. It won't take much convincing to try a few among friends. If the weather's nice, you might even find yourself on the patio outside, although there's a good amount of booth seating and bar space as well.
Mob Bar also has a food menu, with Italian-style eats like clams casino and spicy mussels. The spaghetti and meatball bites, Caprese salad bites and fried cheese and risotto balls are great snack options and very shareable.
There are enough tasty food and drink options here that an invitation to Mob Bar might just be an offer you can't refuse.
