DRINK: Twelve Mile Limit

DRINK: Twelve Mile Limit

The location may be a little bit out of the way, but this unassuming bar helmed by New Orleans bartending darling T. Cole Newton is a must-visit for anyone who values a good pool table, reliable jukebox and easy-to-sip cocktails. The crowd is primarily 20-somethings—who flock to the place for relatively inexpensive sips—and neighborhood folks snacking on great house-made barbecue, but a shifting calendar of events (from comedy shows to R&B dance nights) ensures that the clientele is always diverse and lively.

Know Before You Go: A small, low-key back patio is ideal for lounging around picnic tables and in giant, oversized tires.

Drink to Drink: The Lexington is an off-menu classic at Twelve Mile that flips the Sazerac on its head. Order it and prepare to be seriously in-the-know.
