The Happy Hour food is really good, really affordable, and really worth making the trip to Basil Bar- that is, if you don't mind paying EXTRA for things such as tonic, OJ, and cranberry juice. The menu says, ""Well Drinks, $3.50""- which is completely reasonable (considering some of their specialty drinks are $7) & to any normal bar-goer, that means drinks such as Vodka Tonic, Screwdriver, Rum & Coke, etc. Well, at Basil Bar (or should I say ""Cold Stone Creamery"") that means ""only the bottom shelf alcohol, folks"" - any additional ""mix-in"" will cost ya. No joke- it's itemized on the bill for all to see and gasp at.\r
Really, folks - if you want customers to return to your bar and/or recommend your bar to others- I suggest you stop charging for ""mix-ins."" That, or up your ""well drink"" price to $4 and put ""includes complimentary OJ, cranberry, and tonic!"" in parentheses.
Pros: Really great thai food and super-low prices
Cons: Juice + tonic are NOT included in the drink price....seriously....
