Angel’s Share, a Japanese owned and influenced bar, was the first of the modern day speakeasies to open in this city. It’s still going strong more than 25 years later and is still somewhat of a secret. I won’t tell you exactly where it is (although see the address below) but I will tell you to definitely order the Flirtibird. While all the cocktails are great, this concoction of barley shochu and yuzu juice is really something special. It has a tart plum salt rim and a unique garnish of shiso leaf. It has lots of flavors going on, but the most prevalent one is deliciousness.
