There’s always something fun happening at The Abbey Food & Bar, but the real joy of this eclectic spot is the gorgeous, hand-crafted, and beautifully garnished drinks that are almost too good-looking to toss back.
Some folks say Lincoln Tavern & Restaurant serves up the best pizza in Boston, and there’s nothing like sharing a pie with old friends. The spacious digs are packed with high-spirited revelers most nights, so snag a table early, and enjoy signature cocktails and delicious beers late into the night.
This Scottsdale landmark has been around since 1959 and remains an unpretentious local favorite. The atmosphere is warm, the décor traditional, and the beer and cocktail list is varied. It’s also a live music venue, staging local acts, with outdoor barbecues on music nights.
This open-air hangout in the middle of the Strip throws quite the party. Live music has patrons busting moves left and right, and the cavorting goes on well into the wee hours of the morning. Even ordering a drink is a fun experience thanks to bartenders who treat their job like it’s a performance, flipping bottles and pouring libations with the kind of flair you only see in the movies.
The first thing you’ll notice about Area 31 is the panoramic views of Biscayne Bay, the Miami River, and glittering Miami skyscrapers. Located on the 16th floor of the Kimpton EPIC Hotel, this elegant restaurant and bar is a great place to meet up with friends and enjoy delicious international cuisine.
And because we know one round with old friends can easily end up being 3 to 4 rounds, make sure to request a ride with Uber so you can focus on catching up, not on how you’re getting home.
