Elyx Mule at Oak & Ivy

Don’t let the fire-breathing praying mantis outside of Downtown Container Park scare you away. Just behind the mechanical beast lies one of Las Vegas’ finest cocktail bars. What it lacks in space — the bar is housed in a shipping container — it more than makes up for in its exceptional menu. Among the stars is the Elyx Mule, made with a house-made ginger beer and Angostura bitters and served in an Absolut Elyx Copper mug.
