“So, it’s summer,” you say, “and I want a Savvy place to party, Frisco Savvy. I’m a grownup and I would like a nice cocktail in the company of grownups. So whaddayagot?” How about the grand opening of a swank new club?
Patriarch’s Sanctuary is a new bar opening on Frisco Square this weekend. We’ve toured the place, so if gorgeous European antiques, hand-scraped woods, artisan stained glass, custom cocktails, and a baby grand piano are your thing, we can safely say you’re going to love it. There are no televisions on the wall; if you absolutely can’t tear yourself away from The Game or The News, you’ll have to go elsewhere… but in our humble opinion, that’s a plus, not a minus.
Around here, we make no secret of our appreciation for libations. A fine cocktail with friends is the last outpost of civilization in this modern world, and Frisco Savvy will promote that sort of fellowship until the end of days. If you’re of like mind, check out this recent blog post from the New York Times’ spirits blog, The Pour.
