Sometimes I just like to sit a the bar, have a nice craft brewed beer or a nice glass of wine and order off the menu. Whether it's just a burger or a steak dinner, I find that most bartenders are very attentive and provide excellent service and make me feel well taken care of. I also like the action at the bar.
Some of my fav spots, to name a few, are Donovan's in LJ, The Palm, Georges, Ritual and Bully's for an old school touch.
What are yours?
