(good) Cocktail bar in/near Somerville?

Headed to Origins tomorrow night for dinner, wanted to stop some place for a pre-dinner (good) cocktail. a.k.a. If I ask for a simple old-fashioned, I don't get a "well, how about a Cosmo-super-blue-sugar-martini instead"....if you get my drift.

  1. You could try the bar at Tapastre.

    1. We have always liked the bar at Verve.

        Verve is the best bar in town as far as drinks and bartenders. The bar in the main restaurant above Tapastre (Il Pomodoro?) is a great setting but otherwise desperate.
