Williams & Graham

We were skeptical when we heard that a Prohibition-inspired bar was opening in LoHi; it seemed like a Portlandia episode, with one too many hipster gimmicks. We couldn’t have been more wrong. Williams & Graham is a bar-lover’s bar, where perfectly mixed cocktails are the stars. The extensive menu can be intimidating, so ask the bartender for some guidance; they’ve never led us astray, especially with the Vieux Carré, a zinger straight outta N’awlins. Even better? They treat you like a regular every time you sit down. In fact, co-owner Sean Kenyon insists that his bartenders can name everyone at their bar—and the drinks they’re sipping on—at any given moment. 3160 Tejon St., 303-997-8886,
