Small plates have taken over the dining scene, so it was only a matter of time until we reached the next phase: “tapas-style” cocktails.

The half- to three-quarter-portion drinks will be available in flights at Nocturne, a hidden bar that will open mid-July in the basement of Sugar Shack‘s forthcoming Shaw doughnut shop. The set-up will be reminiscent of Captain Gregory’s, a cocktail lounge concealed inside the Alexandria location.

Nocture, however, will be even more experimental than Captain Gregory’s. “It’s meant for people who really want to see bartenders push themselves to the limit,” says owner Rob Krupicka, a former Democratic member of the Virginia House of Delegates.
