Bait shop is part nautical bar, part tropical tiki joint, and you can add pineapple or bacon to anything on the menu of bar food hits. Make it a pit stop on a Cap Hill bar crawl, or grab a huge booth and spend the night playing Uno and passing around baskets of crispy fish and some of the best french fries in the city. As for drinks, the daily-rotating frozen cocktails make repeat visits exciting, and the painkiller (rum, pineapple, coconut, orange, nutmeg, and cinnamon) makes just about anything exciting.
