Located next door to the famed Williams & Graham, its sister bar the Occidental is now officially open to the public. Award-winning bartender Sean Kenyon and partner Todd Colehour planned the venue for several years and finally pulled all the pieces together to unveil a modern, hip, and comfortable space with a bar program that is approachable yet sharp.
The cocktail list is small but mighty, with classics like Margaritas and Long Island Tea and signature drinks bearing names reminiscent of old school punk bands. There is also beer, ten taps plus some carefully chosen cans and bottles. Quirky fun bites from State Fare food truck complement the beverages. Just order from your server and items like mortadella corn dogs will show up at your table.
Bonus: The Ox features some pinball machines, video games, and TVs showing the big sports games or other programming.
