Inside Aster on Fourth, a Chic Downtown Bar for Cocktails, Bites and Upstairs Patio

This social sippery is a casual cocktail space above the downtown location of Sleepy Bee Cafe. The beverage director and Bee chefs worked together to create a menu that brought "the farm to the cocktail world." Tapping into the latest trend in mixology, there's also a smattering of non-alcoholic and low ABV cocktails that go beyond soda and virgin mixed drinks to accommodate everyone in your party. Socials — carafes of drinks for sharing with friends old and new — are perfect when imbibed on the rooftop patio. The bar also offers sharable bites like burrata, ember oil hummus, cheese, charcuterie and more. Aster, 8 E. Fourth St., Downtown. asteronfourth.com
