Make some Bad Decisions

bad decisionsLast night I got out to Bad Decisions, the new bar run by John Reusing across Fleet Street from Ale Mary's.

Great name for a bar, isn't it? The awning says "Bad Decisions" on the side and "Make Some" in the middle.

Bad Decisions used to be the lo-fi restaurant/bar Island II Bar & Grill.

It doesn't look like Reusing has changed much with the building.

I'm working on the review today, but in a nutshell, Bad Decisions puts substance over style ...

The place ain't fancy but the drinks are, and that's what's going to hook people.

I had a Bee Sting, which was mead mixed with Woodpecker Cider and a Captain Morgan and coconut water. Both were delicious.

If you can't wait for my review, read Metromix's review here. Wonder where they heard about Bad Decisions?
