Prohibition has live music every night, so it’s a good option for all kinds of situations, from first dates when you want to avoid awkward small talk to quick solo drinks when you’re killing time. Get some house cocktails at the bar, and if you end up wanting a break from the music (or you come before the music starts), hang out at one of the sidewalk tables out front.
