Whether you are looking for some quiet alone time or bringing along friends, this cozy fireside lounge has a lodge theme and soaring ceilings that immediately relax you.

Bottled beers, tall cans, and a few staple tap handles, The Doll Hut serves wine, but isn’t that kind of place. When defining punk rock dives, Doll Hut is the standard. Loud music, hard drinking, one wall unit air conditioner, and thousands upon thousands of band stickers tell the story of a watering hole that has been standing for nearly 100 years.
A growing contingent of drinkers are looking for vegetarian and vegan friendly options when bellying up to the bar. The Junk Bar at Healthy Junk has earned a reputation for being pretty darn discerning when it comes to delivering for their patrons both from the kitchen and behind the bar. While Junk only has a beer and wine license, the options are interesting enough to make an evening of it.
A somewhat hidden speakeasy themed bar and restaurant should already be a pretty easy sell, but if that wasn’t enough to pique your curiosity, maybe a green tea infused Old Fashioned appropriately called the “Early To Rye” will do it. Bookshelves that double as revolving doors, dimly-lit brick walls, bartenders suited in vests and ties pouring incredibly artistic, hand-crafted cocktails make this place so much more than novelty cool.
Located in the adjoining room of the applauded Ranch restaurant, traditional country music and the occasional two-step are propelled by a cocktail program that that gets creative with the hits. In much the same way The Ranch nails a sear on a choice cut of steak, the bar staff show they are no slouch with twists like their Carolina Peach Julep or the whiskey laced bliss of their signature Moonshine Margarita.
Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar manages to capture all the wonder and delight of the magic fountain and singing animatronic parrots while dousing your liver with generous amounts of rum. Complete with Tiki gods, moving barstools, jungle mist and the occasional roll of thunder, the island-clad bartenders hammer out tropical concoctions in ceramic tiki heads over finely crushed ice in a way that suggests this fun environment is taken very seriously.
