I'm pretty sure this is my new favorite bar in the city.  Where else can you get delicious drinks like this amazing Mai Thai made with lots of crushed ice and fresh mint leaves for only $9.00 a pop during happy hour and $11.00 all other times?

That place is Boilermaker a retro style bar located at the nexus of the universe (1st & 1st for those not into Seinfeld).  

They have tons of incredible cocktails from the classic Tom Collins to refreshing Pimm's Cup and Mr. T's favorite Negroni. 

Not to mention a pretty delicious burger topped with fig aoili and some solid french fries and onion rings.

The only thing I would skip would be the wings which come with far too much breading for my liking.

Boilermaker also has a couple of cocktails on tap like the crazy Cracker Jack a buttered popcorn infused spiced rum and coke.  Where else can you get something like that!
