Radio Bar has carved out a charming niche for itself behind the big wooden walls that tease anyone driving down Government without the free time necessary to stop in for a cold one.
The bar doesn’t have any TV’s to distract yourself with, but it is known for pumping good music through the speakers and their dartboard, ping pong table combo on the patio makes having a good time easy. It’s a truly relaxing environment with a wide array of patrons just diverse enough to keep you interested with unique characters always willing to share a story.
Of course, a bar is a bar. Let is be known that although Radio Bar serves up all your classic beers out of fresh taps into ice cold glasses, some of the best and most original cocktails in Baton Rouge come out of this place. We’ve highlighted their spring cocktail menu in the past, but now, fall is upon us, so let’s take another look at what this neighborhood joint is whipping up for a limited time.
the new fall cocktail menu comes with five new options, but the one that got us most excited was the Moonlight Cocktail, a combination of gin, creme de violette, spiced orange liqueur, and a bit of lime. Gin has always been a go-to for diverse fall cocktails, so chalk up the base alcohol as a nice choice. The creme de violette, for those unaware, is a notoriously sweet and floral liqueur that goes well with fruitier options, so mixer number one is a go. Next, is spiced orange liqueur, which should go over well with anyone who likes the spicy and sweet sensations that seem to take over during the fall. Finally, a bit of lime garnish to bring it on home on this sweet, spicy beverage.
The Moonlight Cocktail is a bit pricier than the average college kid is usually keen on spending at $9 a piece, but let’s consider it a worthy investment on your weekend state of mind.
