#1786 - 1022 South, Tacoma, WA - 5/20/2012

1022 South, AKA the Hidden Apothecary, is a small cafe and craft cocktail lounge in Tacoma's Hilltop neighborhood. The mad pharmacists there will turn their tinctures, herbs, and potions into some of the best cocktails in the Pacific northwest. They have an excellent cocktail list, but this is one of those places where you will want to tell the bartender a bit about your tastes and let them concoct something surprising and lovely for you.

In addition to the friendly and talented bartenders, we met customer Chris here, who grew up in my (Greenwood) neighborhood and kindly gave me some coins from the Old 5th Ave. Tavern.  We had a fine visit. It is out of the way for most people I know, but the New York Times somehow made it all the way there and found it well worth the trip.
