Hang Glider, Revival at the Sawyer
Did Sacramento need a new swanky spot? After a drink at Revival at the Sawyer, my answer is yes. The rooftop bar launched last fall and quickly became a downtown hotspot, hosting weekend dance parties and an upscale but friendly feel. The Wednesday night atmosphere is a bit quieter—perfect for sipping the sweet and smokey Hang Glider ($12) in the indoor lounge. Made with pink peppercorn-infused Hangar 1 Vodka out of Alameda, aperol Amaro Nonino and lemon, the Hang Glider is a tasty example of how Revival is elevating craft cocktails in the city. 500 J Street, revivalsacramento.com.
