After a dinner out, a concert or a play, even those with the most well-stocked home bar like to stop off on the way home for a nightcap. Well, at Here there’s ample parking and comfy, cozy seating and delicious mixes on the menu, should folks want to veer from the standard twist of lime. Everybody’s Girl offers a light, tart refresher with vodka lifted by elderflower and grapefruit, tempered with the salinity of Fino sherry and bubbled up with prosecco. The Goldrush puts bonded bourbon on the back of a mule, with lemon, honey, ginger beer and angostura bitters. Late night bites are also perfect for that last craving and indulgence of the evening; mac-and-cheese crusted with potato chips delivers on comfort, while the charcuterie and cheese board present the expected meats and cheese with a delightful house-made bourbon, tomato and bacon jam that is delicious enough to eat with a spoon when the baguette runs out. Here neighbors Humble Pie provide two pies (the Mississippi mud-like Bayou Goo and a frozen strawberry chiffon) exclusive to the Lounge, and they contribute to sweet dreams, but chef Megan Foley offers a rotating selection of sweet treats to share…or not. Whether the last stop is one drink or four hours and a full meal, Here is best before home.
