The Velvet Tango Room

This is the place to go if you want a proper cocktail. The Tango Room is one of a handful of bars in the country that makes honest, old-fashioned drinks – the juice is fresh-squeezed, the syrups, bitters and sodas are house-brewed, everything is shaken by hand, and even the ice is specially formulated. Don’t expect anything with sugar on the rim or -tini as a suffix. I like the Apple Brandy Sours in the fall, Manhattans in the winter, Sidecars in the spring, Moscow Mules in the summer, and the French 75 all year long.

Call ahead for reservations in the back room Friday and Saturday nights – you’ll get a password that lets you in through a trick door to the inner sanctuary. Trust me – it’s worth a visit.

Prosperity Social Club
This is my neighborhood bar of choice. At the back of the bar, there are stacks of old board games you can play, or you can try your hand at the vintage duck-pin bowling machine. It’s like like the rec-room of my dreams, and it’s the only place in the city that I know of where you can sit with a beer and play Connect-Four all night long. The food is pretty good, too.
