Behind an unmarked door waits Central’s go-to spot for an expertly crafted, wittily named cocktail. Dimly lit with sleek lines and a hip but low-key vibe, Brick & Mortar somehow walks the line between bustling and intimate, and the estimable cocktail menu rotates often, though the bartenders are happy to whip up a favorite from a past visit. They also rotate the old-school records on the turntable behind the curved copper bar, transforming even a tired Tuesday into party time.
