Arbella is a cocktail lounge next to and owned by the same people as Tanta that complements the restaurant well. Its high ceilings, brick walls, and colorful murals make it a comfortable place to sit, but the cocktail list is what you’re really here for - it reads like a map of the world in alcohol form. Try something you’ve never had before, like a PB&J cocktail. This is a great place to catch-up with friends or take a date.
