Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

If you're tired of plain, cherry-topped Manhattans, you'll want to check out the "Iconic Manhattan Series" at this chic downtown bar. With five "Formulas" to choose from, you're sure to find one you'll like. We tried the Formula #1, with Rittenhouse rye, Campari, dry vermouth and kosher salt, as well as the Formula #4, with vanilla-infused bourbon, lillet rouge and peach bitters -- and between the two we couldn't choose a favorite. Now that's a cocktail compliment.

Think you know where we're drinking this week? Leave your best guess below.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
