Garage is a hidden cocktail bar off Colorado Street in, you guessed it, a garage. While it takes a few minutes to find, you’ll thank yourself for making the effort after your first drink. It’s mostly how you would imagine a secret cocktail spot: a well-designed space, marble countertops, and trendy drinks with names like “Scandinavian Summer” and “Indian Paintbrush.” Basically, it checks off all the boxes for a place to impress a date, celebrate a birthday, or take an out-of-towner. Word of warning: although it’s hidden, Garage isn’t exactly a secret. If you want to avoid lines, get there on the early side to play it safe.
