Both the agreeable climate, and the fact that nearly everyone here works in bars, make SD a pretty choice place to get a drink. But to make sure you're getting the most out of your tippling time, our SD editor Sara Norris is here with her picks for drinking around the town.
Best Cocktail Bar: Polite Provisions is one of the newest craft cocktail establishments in town, and their creative libations take full advantage of a stock of over 50 bitters. Add in that their 46-tap set up also pours draft cocktails, craft sodas, and even a few spirits, and you've got the makings of a memorable-if-you-weren't-drinking-so-many-cocktails evening.
Best Beer Bar: Named after a beloved 35yr resident of South Park, award-winning Hamilton’s is housed in a building that holds SD's oldest beer and wine license. That's exactly the kind of local history that'll blow your mind after sampling all of the rotating beers on their 28 taps and two cask setups. And if you climb that mountain, then feel free to tackle their 200+ bottles.
