The Punch Room is a 19th century-themed speakeasy inside The Ritz-Carlton in Uptown.

Context: The popular cocktail bar closed during the pandemic and reopened in late 2023. It's known for its wide selection of cocktails and large cocktail bowls for bigger groups.

We tried: The Singapore Sling ($18), Street Side ($18), Rye Tai ($20) and the signature Fukuoka Punch that comes with 10-12 glasses ($120).

Stop by: The Punch Room is at 201 E. Trade St. It's open 5pm-12am Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
