15. The Bar at Nico Osteria

Don’t even think about wearing jeans and a T-shirt at the newest venture from Paul Kahan (Avec, Big Star, Publican). But Big Star meets Gold Coast this ain’t. The posh bar and lounge, with its dark walls, plush chairs, and svelte cocktail list, is as exactingly chic as its patrons. Enjoy some fresh seafood at the adjoining res- taurant and then stop by here for a postdinner drink—or spend the whole night cozying up to the Viagra Triangle locals.

Who’s there: Well-coiffed middle-aged couples

What to order: The Chestnut (chestnut-infused Buffalo Trace bourbon, chestnut honey, lemon juice)
