Guided by Dave

Despite popular belief, one can find exceptional craft cocktails in the college town of Berkeley. Despite its reputation for organic, locally-sourced, farm-to-table cuisine, Berkeley can brag about its handful of bonafide "Manhattan-quality" cocktail lounges. Join us on a walk of five establishments ranging in style from biodynamic seasonal ingredients to mezcal-driven Mexican inventiveness to a craft brewery. Grab a friend and get ready for a fun night.
