Today, I tried out a new establishment in a familiar location—Ella’s Barstaurant in the former home of Sluggo’s. No, that’s not a typo, it really is called a Barstaurant.

The inside of the place looks the same—and some of the clientele has carried over from Sluggo’s as well; however, there is one major upgrade as far as I could tell—the $3 Build Your Own Bloody Marys on Sundays! Yes, that’s right,$3 ($4 if you want Smirnoff; $5 if you want Absolut.).

And, as you can see from the photos, the fixin’ bar is stocked—there’s nowhere else where you can get AYC stuff in your drink beef sticks, cheese, bacon and shrimp, plus the staples like pickles, celery, olives, beans, asparagus and onions.

Spice:  I requested it to be spicy and it had the perfect amount of kick!

Mix:Sacramento Bloody Mary Mix—who knew this tomato juice purveyor also made Bloody Mix? So simple, yet so good!

Chaser: None, but here’s a tip: go with friends who order pitchers and you’re good to go!

Fixin’s: See above—the highlights are the shrimp and bacon!

Price: $3 with rail vodka

As my friend Gordie so eloquently put it, “Where else can you cram that much crap in a glass for $3?”

Ella’s has definitely immediately climbed into the Top 10 and is the running for a new place to gather and watch Packers games this fall.

Cheers!

PS- While this is a Bloody blog, I could not help but  notice the $10 bottomless mimosas on Sundays as well…not as trendy as the Third Ward, but could be a good choice for your next girls’ brunch!
