Mid-City’s 12 Mile Limit isn’t just off the beaten path; it’s offbeat in a charming, come-as-you-will, rogue kind of way. There’s a buzzer on the door, barbecue in the back, and brilliant cocktails from Mixologist and Proprietor Cole Newton. Set in a residential neighborhood, 12 Mile Limit is a rare space that caters to both slots-playing, Miller High Life-drinking regulars and high-end cocktails worshipers. The latter group will find updated classic cocktails and bespoke Newton creations, served with a story and without any pretense. The aforementioned barbecue from Tom Shorthall has been voted some of the city’s best, and to add to the funky mix, Charlotte McGehee runs her Debbie Does Doberge bakery out of the kitchen, serving patrons mini doberge cakes and cupcakes.
