Don’t expect a quick drink at North Park’s hot spot, Polite Provisions, for cocktail enthusiasts and hipster types, because the bartenders mix and muddle the strong, amazingly delicious drinks with delicate precision, drawing upon dozens of bitters and other artisanal ingredients. The true work of art, however, is the bright, airy setting, which features a beautiful old-fashioned drugstore look. Take your pick from the variety of cocktails and spirits on the menu or the beer and wine menu that rotates daily.

Tiger! Tiger! have a fantastic selection of beer and bartenders who are very knowledgeable. The crowd is usually full of hipsters and others toasting this family-friendly North Park alehouse. With an airy, cabin-like interior and a patio, this is a very popular bar. Their inspired bar fare (e.g. wood-fired sandwiches) is quite delicious too, though there can be a bit of a wait to order at the counter due to its popularity with the locals.
