1. East Sixth
East Sixth has changed a lot in recent years, and it's now a hopping highbrow-meets-lowbrow mecca. Drinks with a group happen at The Liberty, Violet Crown Social Club, or Yellow Jacket Social Club. You can have your pick of Paul Qui’s award-winning projects here: elevated dining at Qui, southeast Asian street food at East Side King, or "O.G. Thai" at Thai Kun. Have hand-crafted cocktails at East Side Showroom, or a beer in the tap room at Hops & Grain Brewery down the street. Just over a block on 7th, you’ve got the welcoming patio at Takoba, Provencal-inspired French eatery LaV, and casual-yet-elevated The Hightower.
