Why locals recommend it
The Skip has a lot of New Orleans-style blender drinks, but in a good way. Like, really good. It is in an alley — but like a beautiful, polished, really immaculate alley that’s got like Shepard Fairey artwork in it. It’s the sister bar to Standby, and this is their first year being open. Order the Irish Coffee, a frozen Irish Coffee drink based on the famous New Orleans one. Standby managed to sort of reverse-engineer that recipe, and their Irish Coffee is just phenomenal.

nice bar downtown, usually the best in the summer due to their iced alcoholic beverages.
