If you haven’t been to Dalva in a while, it’s time to change that. The beloved neighborhood bar reopened after the pandemic with a lighter, airier feel and inventive cocktails, like the Garibaldi Sunrise (Campari, tequila, fresh orange juice, “sangrita fluff,” and an orange wedge sprinkled with Tajin), as well as a couple of highballs, plus beer, cider, and vermouth on tap. And for everything we love about its new and improved look, what we also love is that its not-so-secret hidden back bar, the Hideout, feels much the same. With dark, moody, cozy, and casual, with red walls and cushy banquettes, the only major change is its menu of classic cocktails. Change is hard, but in this case, the Dalva folks got the balance just right.
