When is a bar not just a bar? When it publishes its own book of cocktails. Red Feather Lounge is among the pack leaders when it comes to handcrafted cocktails in the City of Trees. And although its wine cellar and cocktails sporting perfectly square 1-inch cubes are definitely noteworthy (cross reference Best Local Cocktails), you, dear readers, think the martinis at this Eighth Street watering hole and restaurant are the best in town. Maybe that has something to do with the lounge's winning streak in the Best Bartender category as well. Just maybe.
