Casual, beautiful, and fragrant, Bar Flores is one of the best new places to drink on the Eastside. Located above the recently opened Lowboy and Adamae, stepping into this Latin cocktail bar is like stepping into a different, much better world. There’s a gorgeous patio in the back, the drinks are strong and taste great (the sangria should win some international award), and we have no clue what’s in the air, but it smells better than an Aesop showroom in here. Sure, you’re dealing with the usual Echo Park crowd of NPR shirts, but all things considered, this is a truly excellent bar.
