The whole hog resto from the Hopdoddy dudes -- who brought in a pair of veteran chefs from ATL and FLA -- is in the former Red House, with a more polished but still inviting vibe marked by an open kitchen, paintings of gigantic porkers, and light fixtures made of cutlery, which has graduated from tongue to tungsten.
Should your conception of happy hour be incomplete without a charcuterie board, the patio at Salty Sow has your number. As the name suggests, get ready to indulge in decadent, savory meats and small bites to accompany their amazing selection of cocktails. While their patio may not be the biggest on this list, the fact that it is packed nightly is a testament to the good vibes and excellent service dominating the space. Start with the previously mentioned Charcuterie Board and a Curly Tail, a blood orange-inspired tequila cocktail, before moving onto the elderflower liqueur-spiked Sparkling Sangria and a side of the exceptional BBQ Hominy.
