CocktailBoystown | Website
This Boystown bar offers diverse crowds, dancing and more socializing than posturing. Complete with a black crystal chandelier, the front room holds an onyx-lit bar (imported from Greece) and a swank seating area where music is kept low. In the back, the volume is cranked up for dancers. Grab a chair under one of the orange Veuve Clicquot umbrellas in the English-inspired outdoor sidewalk cafe, The Gardens, from March to Nov. 1 to enjoy a libation such as the Grand Marnier Smash with lime, mint and sugar. The bar also dishes up organic, health-centric dishes such as mango chutney chicken salad until 10 p.m. on weekdays outside. If you're coming on Sunday or Monday, ditch your credit cards: Cocktail is cash-only on those nights.
