Way Out is a dark and brooding bar - meet a first date here and you might leave not knowing exactly what they look like. Good thing you don’t need to see the pizza potstickers and taco fingers to know that’s exactly what you want to eat after a few drinks. Maybe that drink is the Bitter Baby, which is basically a boozy pink lemonade, or a $5 Cosmo Shot. With large turquoise booths and plenty of bar stools, as well as extraterrestrial art, it’s a fun place to hang out for a little longer than you planned. And just when you’re ready to leave, you’ll remember there’s a pool table and jukebox in the back. It’s going to be a long night.
