Parklife

$$$$
Perfect For:Big Groups

Parklife is a tiny bar with big outdoor area. It’s about the size and shape of the lot that your apartment building sits on, and, as the name suggests, it does sort of feel like a park. There are a bunch of picnic tables and some patio furniture, and, on a nice day, it’s a pretty ideal place for a mellow hang with about one to seven friends. There’s also a little taqueria from the people behind El Atoradero inside, and they do tacos, burritos, and a version of nachos with fries instead of chips. It isn’t our favorite Mexican in the city, but if you’re drinking it’ll do just fine.

Lavender Lake

Lavender Lake could get away with being a just great bar with a large outdoor patio. However, it scores extra points from us for putting some care into curating a small but solid selection of bar snacks and entree sized plates.
