Rakia Bar Review

Rakia Bar has taken over the space that formerly housed the Red Rocket Cafe. The industrial decor of exposed brick and piping remain but are now softened by prominent wood paneling and relaxed lounge seating. Although the new occupant does serve Julius Meinl coffee, the star of the show - as their name suggests - is the rakia. Popular in Eastern Europe, rakia is a fruit brandy commonly made with plum or grape although many other fruits can be used including raspberry, apple, and juniper.
