Got Plans? Redux: What makes the perfect bar?
During today's chat, a reader weighed in with his/her version of the perfect bar:
Here are my specs for the perfect bar: I really like low-key, no-name type places that don't feel generic. I also like where the bartenders know their stuff (be it beer, wine or cocktails) and I like that usually there are locals and non-locals but not obvious as to which person is which and a place where people can mingle casually without being a meat-market scene or just plain creepy. Also important is that the bartenders make you feel like a regular, even if you're not.
Sounds like a lot of my favorite haunts, but, as we all know, one man's perfect bar is another man's terrible dive. Chime in below with your criteria for the perfect bar and join us during next week's chat.
