It really wasn't so long ago that vodka ruled the roost at most bars, and the fanciest drink that a person felt comfortable ordering was a dirty martini or (shudder) a Cosmopolitan. Well, those days are long gone thanks to the advent of cocktail culture and the popularity of speakeasy-style bars. And while I tend to be partial to bars that don't rely too heavily on references to the 1920s, I also really appreciate that it has become incredibly easy to go to most bars and get a well-mixed Old Fashioned or Vieux Carré. So, in honor of that, go get a drink at Miles, where there is no shortage of perfectly mixed drinks (with awesome, punning names) that celebrate cocktail culture without being too theme-y.
