Swizzle Stick Bar
Last Updated August 11, 2015
Why We Love It: The proprietors of Commander’s Palace know how to pass a good time. Opened in 2005 inside the Loew’s Hotel alongside Cafe Adelaide, this bright, swanky space defies every cliche of dull and desperate hotel bars. Thoughtful cocktails, genuinely friendly bartenders, and an upbeat clientele make this one of the CBD’s finest and most fun drinking establishments. Go, if for no other reason than to watch skilled barkeeps ply their trade the old-school way, chipping away at an enormous block of ice to make those refreshing cocktails.
