Best BYO Food - 2013
We named Project Parlor Best New Bar in 2011, and it's still going strong two years later. Always an eclectic mix of hipsters and longtime locals, the bar has grills in the back but no kitchen: During the warm months, bring your own burgers and dogs, buy a $3 PBR tall boy, and invite friends. It's like throwing a party, except the bar provides the drinks. Nightly DJs spin 1990s hip-hop, disco, and alterna-pop at tolerable volumes, and the place is no slouch when it comes to cocktails: Drink a fiery absinthe cocktail or one of the best Aviations in town.
