In Savannah, it’s easy to find great cocktails. There is a watering hole around every corner, often more than one. But narrowing down the list? That can be tricky. 

A red door welcomes patrons at The Fitzroy, a large bar in a historical building at 9 Drayton St. The ambiance is warm and welcoming, with craft cocktails to match. Try the Rosie The Riveter, made with Citron vodka, strawberries, ginger beer, and lime. 

Order the Artillery Punch at Artillery, 307 Bull St., made with Smith and Cross rum, Copper & Kings brandy, Rittenhouse rye, Haymans Sloe gin, and green tea, and topped with sparkling wine. The Artillery Punch is in good company as you'll see with the eight-page drink menu. 

Since 1951, The Original Pinkie Masters at Drayton and Harris Streets has honed its reputation as THE place for cheap PBRs, awesome jukebox selections, and colorful patrons. Originally called “The Rainbow Grill,” regulars soon began referring to this cash-only lounge as “Pinkies.” You can’t beat the $8 cocktails, which include an Old Fashioned, Manhattan, Negroni, Pimm’s Cup and more. 

Enjoy amazing views at The Lost Square atop the Alida Hotel, 412 Williamson St. Fireplaces serve as centerpieces and the large bar has plenty of space where you can cozy up. The drinks have fun names like Shoulda Coulda Woulda and Gather Round. 

You can’t go wrong with the bottomless mimosas at The Ordinary Pub, 217 1/2 W. Broughton St. Pair it with their brunch and you are set. 

At Arches Bar inside The Olde Pink House, 23 Abercorn St., order a Pink Lady, made with fresh-squeezed lemonade and Atomica raspberry vodka, or a Pink House mojito. The atmosphere is casual, and when the weather’s nice you can’t beat a street-side table.

What’s your go-to spot for cocktails in Savannah?
