The Original OKRA Charity Saloon
Here’s how this works: Every drink purchased at OKRA’s Charity Saloon qualifies as a vote toward one of four charities at the polling station against the wall. Charities are always local, and at the end of each month, the bar donates all profits to the organization elected by its patrons. If that spirit of benevolence—the bar has donated over $1 million to charity—doesn’t win you over, trust that it’s simply a great place to drink. The latticed glass ceiling floods the wooden hall with natural light, a shuffleboard table awaits your attention, and the waffle fries are arguably the best in the business of waffle fries.
