Sure to make anyone's palate happy, the Wilhelm is perfect if you're looking for a cocktail that's not overbearing. The Wilhelm includes Gordon's Gin, Cointreau, Cherry Herring, Saint Germain, and lime juice. If you're looking for a quiet drink with some friendly and talkative bartenders, hit Empress Room early on a weeknight as it gets a little crazy on weekends and later on weeknights. Empress Room is located on Glenwood Ave. right above C. Grace.
Empress Room has an eastern Asian theme and it's one of the prettiest bars in town with an outdoor deck that overlooks the heart of Glenwood South. They pulled out all stops for this royal spot—they even have a Buddha statue floats above the bar in front of a turquoise glow. The Enlightened One overlooks red velvet couches, big drippy candles, and the beaded bamboo curtains that dangle in doorways. The cocktails are just as unique and fun as the decor, and they're all named after famous emperors and empresses!
