Where should I get a drink before Ad Hoc?
I'm eating at Ad Hoc in a few weeks would love some suggestions as to where to get a drink before a 7:15 reservation. It doesn't necessarily be in Yountville but somewhere that's not too far a drive. Thanks in advance for your help!
If you want beer, Pacific Blues at the market place down a block. Hurley's has a nice bar for cocktails. Makes a good bloody mary. Wine bar at Napa Style in the market also.

I love the bar at Bouchon. And the alcohol/spirits selection is great.
Bistro Jeanty has an OK bar.
But what may be the most fun: Head west under the Washington Street overpass (the equivalent of about 2 blocks), and take an immediate right into the driveway of Domaine Chandon. Lovely setting to drink some very fine bubbly. I'd get a split of the Etoile, or sample the fine (and unusual) red
wine called Pinot Meunier. But I'm a wine head, and you may need something stiffer.
