When you dream about opening your own bar, you probably talk about the weird quirks you’d include to make it different and, more importantly, yours. At Third Rail, that quirk is their homemade jerky. There are plenty of flavors to choose from, but we like the red rye jerky with coffee and the candy version with brown sugar. If you just want something to snack on, they do shot, beer, and jerky combos for $10. Aside from the tasty meat taffy, the cocktails here are worth coming for on their own, like the gin Godzilla with nori and sesame and the Comeback with mezcal.
