Obivia benefits from the glut of customers at next-door neighbor La Esquina: drinkers here are often those waiting for a table at one of the popular Mexican restaurant's two sit-down establishments. Obivia's specialty cocktail list here can run into the outrageously pricey ($16?!) so the bar is best enjoyed during the 5 to 8 p.m. daily happy hour: Harpoon IPA for $3.50; well drinks for $5; and a food menu of mini burgers ($2.50), mini meatball subs ($2), and a half a dozen wings ($4). The brunch is equally generous, offering free mimosas from noon to 2 p.m.
