The Bar At Hotel Van Zandt review image

The Bar At Hotel Van Zandt

When you want a fancier place to start your night - or a quieter place to end it - head over to the Hotel Van Zandt and get a cocktail at their outdoor bar by the pool. You’ll get beautiful city views, drinks made from fresh juices and infused liquors, and a chance to actually sit down. If the crowd is too tame and you’re in the mood for more, just head back down to Rainey Street. Or cannonball into the pool.

Half Step is a cocktail spot on Rainey with bars both inside and outside, both of which serve the kind of drinks that take five minutes to make.
