Hit the speakeasy

The password is Paso: Eleven Twenty Two Cocktail Lounge might be a little tricky to find, but that’s exactly the point! Shake up your everyday life with a craft cocktail mixed by a dashing bartender (yes, you can pretend you’re in one of those swanky black and white movies). Maybe it’s the flicker of candlelight or the allure of jazz music floating over the din of quiet conversation, but this little downtown Paso haunt always has a way of injecting a little va-va-voom into our evening. Maybe it’s time to mix it up tonight?
