Music City Hot Chicken is one of Fort Collins newest establishments, and a well thought out one at that. The casual order at the counter and get a number vibe makes it a dining out experience for any occasion, but the bar scene reminds me of a punk rock dive bar out of Portland, OR.

According to the hip tattooed bartender, the house margaritas are the most sought after drink. Made with fresh sweet-and-sour and Lunazul Blanco, these simple yet delicious margaritas can also come with a kick of the City’s house green chili or hot sauce.

The Whiskey Smash, made with mint simple syrup, Jim beam bourbon, the Brass Monkey with Mickeys Grenade and OJ are some of the other potent and unique options.

The many Mules are another Music City Hot Chicken must. Made with Moscow-Spring 44 Vodka (the favorite of the Mules), Mexican-Sauza, London-Spring 44 Gin, Tennessee-Dickel Sour Mash Whiskey and dark, stormy-Goslings Rum, there’s a Mule for everyone at Music City Hot Chicken.

But if you’re not in the mood for spirits, the City offers Shiner Bock, Friar Chuck Kolsch, New Belgium heavy melon and Odell IPA on draft. So if you’re looking for a mid-week drink, hit up Music City Hot Chicken.
