Temple Bar is a cocktail den designed like a 1940’s era speak-easy, and without a sign outside, it’s easy to miss while walking down Lafayette Street. The bar has a dark, sultry vibe due to its dark room with filtered lights, and you can’t miss the beautiful oak bar as soon as you enter. Make a right and you step into a gorgeous room with mahogany walls and thick curtains. The bar features tables that have enough room for privacy, making it a great spot for a date or business meeting. One of their top selling cocktails, which happened to be one of our new favorites, was the Basil Gimlet – gin, basil and lime. Refreshing and light, and does the trick.
