Considering Core has two levels of different bar, club, and lounge areas that range from futuristic to kitschy to street-art chic, you could have a different night every time you come to this warehouse-style spot in The City. It doesn't exactly match the suits and day walkers you typically find in this part of town, but it's a welcome, eccentric change -- not to mention, it has killer signature cocktails, like the Rosemary Collins (fresh rosemary sprigs and Star of Bombay gin over crushed ice with citrus, sugar, and soda water). The food menu airs on the heartier side, with a pulled pork sandwich, burgers, steaks, and haddock & chips.
