Rat Rios

Rat Rios is the solo project of 24 year-old Samantha Rios. Blending elements of 80s synth and pop sensibilities (think Depeche Mode meets Kate Bush), Rat Rios crafts music that is all at once dancey and moody–the perfect soundtrack for your late-night drive.

Unsuspecting bar with no signage in Deep Eddy serving some of the best creative infused cocktails in town. Live music creates an inviting atmosphere. Owner and bartender Gabe is known for his mixology skills. Saddle up to the bar lined with liquor bottles, bowls of fresh fruit, and infusion jars and let the bartenders work their magic.
