As Tommy, one of Howl at the Moon’s piano players, explains on the club’s website, “Every night…we try and throw a party, regardless of whether it’s a Tuesday night or a Saturday night.” The bar’s trademark dueling pianos serve as the epicenter of these nightly celebrations; patrons submit their favorite songs on slips of paper for the pianists and backing musicians to recreate. If the website’s playlist is any indication, the bands can handle popular songs from all genres and eras, from Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” to Kanye West’s “All of the Lights.” The performances are spirited: colorful lights splash upon a stage where servers, guests, and chairs that have somehow developed mobility all dance along to the music.

Fueling the celebration is the bar’s indulgent selection of drinks. Servers stand over patrons to plunge jello injectors into their mouths, and revelers grab colorful straws to help drain 86-ounce booze buckets filled with sangria or other fruity libations. Pomegranate liqueur and honey-infused whiskey sweeten specialty cocktails, and local beers add depth to coolers stocked with Stella Artois and Dos Equis.

Each of the wines on the shelf in Cellar Rat has been vetted by the staff?nothing is sold to the public unless the staff would drink it or use it as a substitute for milk in cereal. The resulting more than 800 wines, 70% of which are less than $20, make for tasty everyday and special-occasion beverages, as do the number of premium spirits and handcrafted brews stocked alongside the wine.

Cellar Rat?s vino experts do more than just discern the difference between good and bad wine; they also teach others how to do so during wine classes that delve into the intricacies of tasting. They even make pairing suggestions for the artisan cheeses, gourmet cured meats, and pate also sold in the boutique shop.

More than 20 years after first opening the doors to their rustic, wood-paneled bar and deli, Quintons Waldo Bar continues to blur the line between lunch and late-night revelry with a menu that couples deli-style sandwiches with satisfying bar fare. Cooks assemble a triad of Reubens stacked high with mountains of corned beef, cracked pepper pastrami, and turkey. Napkins work overtime beside the divinely messy chicken-salad sandwich, which overflows with chicken breast baked fresh daily alongside a slew of other succulent meats. Frothy ales pour forth from the bar’s taps during festive nightly events such as DJ sets, when the steam that rises from potato-bacon soup stands in for fog machines.

Shane Hampton knows that grandmothers always know best. So when he felt a little nervous about going to cosmetology school, he only needed to look back on and remember the passion his grandmother, a lifelong hairstylist, had for the job to remember that beauty is in his blood. More than eight years later, he is still sharing his family’s desire to help others feel good about themselves. As a color specialist and master stylist for men and women, he cuts, colors, and styles hair, helping create a confident being below the strands. And, to ensure that newfound confidence comes without sacrificing hair health, he favors products from Unite, Davines, and Ref, which are all free of sulfates and margarine.
