Second Bar + Kitchen is Congress’s casual sibling, drawing in lunch crowds and diners looking for comfort favorites. Burgers, chicken and dumplings, queso fundito, and meatballs all make menu appearances, executed with care by 2012 Rising Star Chef David Bull and his team. Mixologist Billy Hankey runs the bar program at Second Bar, leaning on the seasons and music (he was a long-time sound technician for major label bands) for cocktail inspiration. And whether you want a light prelude to a meal or a hefty drink to help get the weekend started, Hankey has your recipe.
