There, Happy Hour is really happy, because you can get a cocktail that will ease your complaints.
Chakra has seven magical potions linked to the seven chakras that energize body and soul.
Was it a bad day at the office? Then try Sahasrara--Chakra Seven, which governs the top of the head and deals with thought, understanding, knowing and bliss. (Sipping citrus vodka, raspberry, lemon and Chambord does sound pretty blissful.)
Or you could try Muladhara, inspired by Chakra One, the lowest of the chakras, which helps with grounding, stillness and survival.
After drinking this mixture of Absolut Citron, Grand Marnier, Chambord and cranberry juice, you may feel you can survive anything.
If you want to take your mind off everything, order Vishuddha, Chakra Five, above and at top. You'll be enchanted by its vibrant blue color, and after a few sips, you may feel creativity, expansion and excitement.
No wonder. Vishuddha is a stiff blend of vodka, tequila, light rum and Blue Curacao.
Puffy papads and mint and mango chutneys (above) come with the drinks.
The cocktails are $7 during Happy Hour, which is 4:30 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. The coolest place to have them is on Chakra's front patio.
