    At this ‘50s-themed bar, claim a seat on the banquettes and order one of the irresistibly cutesy cocktails, like the Hinky Fizz: strawberry-and-prosecco sorbet, gin, St-Germain, peach bitters and grapefruit juice served in a sorbet cup.

    A basement bar that could double as a taxidermist’s lair. It’s easy to settle in here, shelling peanuts, listening to honky-tonk, petting the stuffed bull head and drinking beer all night.

    Three Blue Ducks, a casual restaurant opened by three surfer friends. The vibe is laid-back — colorful murals painted across the walls, fresh air wafting through open doors and windows — but the organic-focused menu reflects a fine-dining sensibility.
