Choose from an extensive selection of small-batch beers & high-end spirits at Mongoose versus Cobra.
Located in the heart of Midtown on McGowen just past Main Street, Mongoose versus Cobra is beloved for its beer selection, which is selected based on each beer’s particular merits; their draught system, which was hand-built to serve each individual beer; and their spirits, which come served with as little interference as possible.
Open daily, the sturdy industrial, warehouse-esque interior matches the mantra behind the bar, which mixes a small, rotating selection of cocktails that mainly focuses on recipes grounded in pure distilled spirits and high-quality craftsmanship.
And if you’re looking for weekly specials, look no further. Hit the bar Monday to Friday for happy hour from 4pm to 7pm to enjoy $5 drafts and half-off wine and “staff crafts”. If brunch is more your thing, stop in any time on Saturday or Sunday to enjoy a $6 Bloody Mary.
And if you’re looking for a little mid-week music with your cocktails, stop in on any Tuesday evening to up the ambiance with live jazz at the bar.
