Mission is launching a Secret Sundays happy hour with a killer cocktail program from 9pm to close. Classic cocktails will run $6 classic cocktails and it’s $5 for wine and beer. The first event takes place Sunday, September 27 with a one-off starting time of 9:30pm.

Justin Darnes is lead bartender at Mission, working closely with Marc Smolenski.  The cocktail list as Mission is a blend of rarely seen classics aimed at the discerning connoisseur (but appreciated by anyone) matched by modern mixology built on an antique framework.
