Quality cocktail seekers who want something a little livelier than the library vibe at Single Barrel might head down to the new cocktail lounge at 55 South. Run by a couple longtime San Jose bartenders, 55 South looks to update the cocktail classics while still keeping true to their roots. Check out their Old Fashioned with orange bitters, or one of the owner's original concoctions, the State of Grace: raspberries, three kinds of citrus juice, vodka and elderflower liqueur. The scene picks up on the weekends with live music and a packed bar.
