After 5: Great Drinks, Delish Noshes at Morton’s – All Night Long

July 16th, 2010 · No Comments

After 5: Happy Hour at Morton’s West Palm Beach

Happy hours: 5:30 to close – at the bar only

The crowd: Nestled between office towers in downtown West Palm Beach, this “power hour” draws the professional crowd in suit jackets and stilettos.

Surrounds: The elegant bar with its rich wood offers more than sufficient seating, but an outdoor patio is available for smokers and those who want to catch the last rays of the day.

Barback: Annie was helpful, explaining that the bar menu had recently changed, so the Malbec on the menu wasn’t yet available.

The sips: A solid selection of wines is offered at $6 a glass, and beers are $5 each. But the real treats are the specialty drinks and house cocktails. Try the delicious Power Hour Palm Beacher, a pineapple-infused vodka, for $7 or the Jim Beach Manhattan, also $7, if you’d like something stronger.

The noshes: These nibbles are gourmet. The mini-crab cake BLTs (three to a plate) are succulent and the smoked salmon pizza is one of the tastiest we’ve tried. Both are $6. Four petite filet mignon sandwiches, also $6, delighted the steak-eaters among us. Enough for a light meal, actually.

Tunes or noise: Nothing but contented conversation.

Rating: A solid 5 olives out of 5.
