Located in the former space of Bar Vendetta, Court and Spark is outfitted with wooden hues, low lighting, and a decidedly local flavor. The bar’s deep personal charm, however, centers on a rotating cast of signature cocktails crafted by Henry Lopez, owner and mixologist. He shakes and stirs with frantic energy, and the fuss made over each drink reveals a dedication fed by years of trial and error. Court’s micro-kitchen also serves American food, but the bar’s best-kept secret is undoubtedly its generous backyard, a space that practically demands to host everything from (respectfully) boisterous barbecues and rounds of petanque to casual drinks in the shade.
