Classic cocktails in dimly lit, well-designed bars are all the rage right now, and while the Sugar House holds it down in Corktown, the Oakland in Ferndale is a nighttime favorite for the movers and shakers who like to mix it up in pre-Prohibition style. Don't let the sign on the door fool you, the Art Novelty Company is the Oakland, and their master craft is the highly complex and considerable cocktail we bet you'll come to love.
