This time of the year means three things are certain: yellow leaves, crisp autumn air, and new seasonal cocktails from Northside Speakeasy! Last year's fall specials were such a hit that we HAD to bring them back. That means the return of the Smoked Maple Cider and the Pumpkin Spice Martini to complement our two new cocktails. We are excited to share the Campfire Old Fashioned as well as the Apple Cranberry Sidecar! These creations are riffs on two of our most popular cocktails and should prove to be both refreshingly new yet largely familiar. We are all eager to welcome you in soon!

The dog days of summer are here but have no fear, we have plenty of new cocktails to cool you down! We start with the light and refreshing Bitter Solstice: don't be fooled by the name, the bitterness here comes from fresh grapefruit juice which pairs excellently with the light floral aromas of the gin and elderflower. Next the Brown Buffalo: we know that bourbon is the heart and soul of the speakeasy and for that reason we have crafted a premium old fashioned featuring Buffalo Trace bourbon. And what goes better with bourbon than some candied bacon? Lastly we have I Saw You In A Dream: This delightful cocktail perfectly executes the classic art of utilizing egg white for that smooth mouth feel while enjoying the bright flavors of gin and violet. Stop down soon to try these new limited time cocktails along with the staples that you already know and love.
