Scotch & Soda - Springfield, MO

jhojati | May 30, 201406:41 AM    

We were in Springfield for a day, and I had a hankering for an old fashioned (cocktail). Typically, smaller markets don't have a lot by way of craft cocktail bars, so I was pleasantly surprised to find Scotch & Soda pop up when I did a quick Google search.

If you haven't been, go this place. Cocktails here are outrageously good, inventive, creative - whatever you want to call it. And the guy who owns it, Joshua, CARES about what you like, and cares about how you like what he provides you. The cocktails here rival any Chicago cocktail bar - I even spoke to the owner about Chicago and it seems that he (and often his staff) travel up to Chicago for inspiration at some of the cocktail bars there.

We didn't eat, but the food menu looks interesting (predominantly small items that are bar friendly, but aren't typical bar fare).

YES, this attracts hipsters. YES, the owners may be hipsters. Who cares, when they're putting out a product as good as they are. Go here - you won't regret it.
