Suzie Wong’s Good Time Bar
Head through the old refrigerator door that marks the entrance to Suzie Wong's and you’ll find a long, narrow bar adorned in vintage paraphernalia, from very un-politically correct retro advertising posters to surfboards and even a giant swordfish. It’s all overlooked by the live music stage, where rockabilly, blues and surf rock bands take the stage on weeknights, making way for more commercial tunes on weekends.
On the drinks menu, the Suzie’s Colada is the big seller, but there’s a smattering of other creative cocktails to choose from, as well as a selection of craft brews, iconic American beers and curated wines. Apart from the staggering wall of spirits behind the bar, the whole list is short but sweet, because really, this isn’t the kind of place where you stand at the bar umming and ahhing over what to order—it’s where you only break from dancing long enough to get another drink before diving right back into the fray.
