Holiday Cocktail Lounge has been around for a very long time, and presently it's something between a cocktail lounge and a dive bar. It works perfectly for the area. When you’re drinking on St. Mark’s, you want your bar to be a little grungy. This place is dark, it has throw-back vibes, they serve a small menu of pretty-good bar food, and the cocktails are great. Plan your next low-key birthday here.
