We might be cheating with this pick since technically Elements is a covert club, but it’s a bar, too, and a good one at that. If you get there before 8pm, enjoy intricate design details while sipping well-made cocktails and munching on hot wings and fries. Each floor at this four-story club is dedicated to an element with red lava lamps on the fire floor and blue walls and strobe lights representing water on another. If the vibe is right and the drinks are hitting the way they’re supposed to, you can easily stay into the night and turn up as the spot starts to shift to club behavior.
