At each stop throughout the tour, you'll have the chance to sample historic cocktails prepared by award-winning mixologists. Your guide will share with you the origins of these carefully crafted drinks as you slowly sip. The last bar is a local landmark when it comes to craft cocktails and even features live, local music around the time the tour ends.
