Cheap drinks are cool, but if the atmosphere isn't up to par, you're left feeling empty. Hip crowds have their place, but they mean you'll end up paying an arm and a leg. You want something different, but you want to feel comfortable. The Social Room has most definitely been a fantastic solution this year. Not many bars can say they have oversized Connect Four and Jenga on an outdoor patio, but the Social Room rolls like that. Chill as it is, it's not a dive; the decor is beautiful. Candles and beautiful lighting fixtures lead you to cushy seats with ample space to stretch out. Starting at 6 p.m. patrons can listen to music on the inside or mosey outside and enjoy the DJ from a distance. Drinks are affordable ($6 for a Jack and Coke) and usually feature local breweries' beers, which is always a plus.
