Manhattan Inn offers an elegant, classy vibe if you're looking to finish off your evening with a nightcap. It lives up to its name with a delicious Manhattan for $9. Other vintage cocktails include a Gibson, complete with a pickled onion, also for $9. Campari, Margaritas, and a Sazerac cocktail are a bit more at $11. Or, if you'd like to make a night of it, this bar also offers a dinner menu with small plates and a few rotating entrees like a pork belly sandwich or a shepherd's pie. Sit at the bar for a casual feel with friends, or take a date and sit in the back room. On weekends there's live piano, making the speakeasy vibe complete.
On Saturday and Sunday Manhattan Inn offers brunch with an endless cup of Rum Punch. Veggie omelettes, egg sandwiches, a lumberjack breakfast, french toast, or a simple salad make up the menu. If the punch doesn't suit you there's also an excellent Bloody Mary to drink.
