The bar at Napa newcomer Basalt stands out for its industrial-chic décor (exposed piping, warehouse-style windows that let in plenty of light) inside the cavernous building’s stone facade. A welcome break from the usual small bars and tasting rooms, this spot is great for groups who want a palate cleanser of cocktails and savory bites like fresh mussels with wine and garlic fries. The mixologist is a San Francisco bar veteran, having earned his chops at Alembic and Bourbon & Branch, and winning the San Francisco Chronicle’s “Bar Star” award. As such, the cocktails here don’t mess around—try the negroni or the Sea Panther, with dark rum, ginger, and passionfruit.
