Mama Tried

Porn Star Martini
Mama Tried
Mama Tried is an homage to the 1970s, an era when carpeting and red velvet were considered the height of chic. This is a drinker's bar, and it's designed as such. The windows are heavily tinted. Spherical copper lamps hang above a wooden U-shaped bar flanked by green banquettes, and the only other piece of furniture in the room is a pool table. The daily happy hour at this downtown spot includes $7 classics such as a rum-based Dark and Stormy, a French 75, and a traditional three-ingredient (rum, lime, simple syrup) daiquiri. The regular cocktail list, offered alongside a curt selection of craft beers and wines, includes nearly a dozen pop culture-inspired drinks, from the "Porn Star Martini" to the "Raspberry Beret" to the "Smokey and the Bandit."
