Location Description:

Driving down West Gray from downtown to Montrose, it's easy to miss Double Cross Lounge, which comes from the folks who brought you Market Square's Hearsay Gastro Lounge. Formerly the quarters of Tasting Room Midtown, the bar is small - tiny, really - but makes up in ambition what it lacks in size. Taking its name from an award-winning vodka, Double Cross has capitalized on the new wave of mixology and offers up an array of craft cocktails and martinis in the $9-$12 range. The bar makes the most of its limited space, with booths and bar-height tables lining the walls for a dark, cozy atmosphere. Additional seating is available on the patio, perfect for watching the nightly drinking exploits of the neighborhood's well-heeled residents as they spill into the street.
