An opinionated cocktail bar that can be hard to find from the street, Hoof Cocktail bar is the drinking extension of the extinct, yet popular, restaurant The Black Hoof. You will find classic and clever drinks with bourbon, rye, cognac and more for the base.
You may want to try a Guajillo Margarita, even if you don’t know what guajillo infused tequila is. What you won’t find as the base is vodka, which owner Jen Agg declared as “dumb” in a blog post. If you can do without your vodka, you will gain low lighting, smooth jazz and candles in mason jars as the backdrop to your drinking experience.
The food menu is limited, but does include Black Hoof inspired meaty elements, such as duck wings or popcorn chicken hearts. If you are really hungry, go to the Black Hoof after or before your drinks.

If you and tequila have the relationship status of “It’s Complicated,” Reposado may be the place to deepen your bond.
There are over 128 tequilas behind the bar, so you certainly have your choices. There is even an affiliated house band (named the Reposadists, of course) to bring the party to another level on the weekends. Indoor and outdoor seating provide lots of atmosphere, while the tapas menu can help to soak up some of the excess liquor so that things don’t get too crazy.
