Best cocktails near SW 10th & Stark or SE 10th & Morrison

Attending a conference next weekend and staying at the Ace hotel downtown on SW 10th and Stark. Conference is at SE 10th and Morrison at the Yale Union. Schedule will be hectic given lots of evening events.

Hoping to squeeze in a quick breakfast or two at Tasty & Alder/Kenny & Zuke's/Bunk Downtown, maybe a food cart if the weather holds out, as well as a few cocktails. If we have the time and can get away.

My list so far is Kask and Clyde Common near the Ace Hotel. And Rum Club (friend works there) and the bar at Nostrana. Thoughts?

What else is 10-15 minutes away?

How busy are these on weekends? Are any "no standing" like speakeasies in NYC? Will we be subject to a long wait if more than 2 people?

If you only had the opportunity for one drink somewhere near downtown, where would it be? Preference for creative and interesting drinks -- house made tinctures, syrups, bitters, infusions, etc. Some favorites in other cities include PDT, Pouring Ribbons, Booker & Dax, Pegu Club, and Death & Co in NYC, The Hawthorne and Drink in Boston, The Aviary & Billy Sunday in Chicago, Columbia Room in DC.

Thanks in advance!
