Icenhauer’s makes great cocktails, including their highly popular (and very sweet) sangria in a jar, and it’s the kind of bar where you can stay a while with just a few friends or gather a big crew. Bring your dog and stay a while - this is as close as you’ll get to a backyard BBQ feel, minus the meat sweats. Make it to one of their “Super Soul Sunday” dance parties with live music if you can.
