Understory Debuts New Late Night Offerings Dubbed ‘Nocturnal’

Understory, the central bar located within North County’s newest hotspot, Sky Deck, announced the launch of their new late-night cocktail program, ‘Nocturnal’. The menu launches this Friday, October 1st, and will be available daily from 9PM to close moving forward.

A rotating menu of three signature nightcaps

Nocturnal’s offerings feature a rotating menu of three signature nightcaps, each named for a nocturnal flora or fauna species that thrives in the understory, the dimly-lit middle layer of the forest, which plays host to the most lively forest species. Meant to serve as guests’ first taste of the evening ahead, the Nocturnal nightcaps are available for $1, with any subsequent nightcaps being offered for $5.

Don’t miss the inaugural menu

While the nightcap menu will be fluid, rotating regularly to accommodate bartender’s choice and seasonality, there will always be one vodka-based nightcap, one whiskey-based nightcap, and one tequila-based nightcap. The inaugural menu includes the Halcyon Horseshoe, made with Irish Whiskey, Peach Liquor, and Lemonade, the Crash Bandicoot, which combines Tequila, Sweetened Watermelon, and Tabasco, and the Firefly, which is made with Vodka, Strawberry, and Lemonade.

In addition to the nightcaps, the nocturnal menu also offers a variety of spirits bottles for purchase, including Don Julio 1942, Grey Goose, Makers Mark, Hendricks, and Moet, all of which come with a selection of mixers. Understory’s full cocktail and bites menu will also be available during Nocturnal, making it a destination for after-dinner drinks, a date night, or a night out.

See you there, San Diego!
