treadsack.com/johnnysFans mourned The Boom Boom Room when it closed its doors, but the building is now home to a worthy successor. While the bartenders at Johnny's are perfectly capable of coming up with complex cocktails (some of them even compete in local and national competitions), the real appeal here is the no-frills classic cocktail program. Some of the best drinks ever invented have only three or four ingredients, and Johnny's has a list of ten for only $8 each. These include martinis, gimlets, mojitos, mules and old-fashioneds. The space, all done up in greens, creams and oranges, is sparse yet comfortable and an attractive place to relax.
