During the day, the tables at Fireside Brewhouse might be packed with parents and children alike enjoying fried catfish, spicy pasta, thick burgers, and piles of sticky pork ribs. But at 10 p.m., the lights dim, three fire pits ignite, and the cars in the parking lot revert to their pumpkin forms, heralding the casual restaurant's transformation into a lounge for patrons aged 21 and older. At a 50-foot bar, tenders mix cocktails and pour more than 150 beers and wines, which complement the menu of American, Mexican, Italian, and Pacific-inspired dishes. On some nights, revelers join in karaoke or listen to a live band, while other nights find the beats of a house DJ inspiring feet to dance. Select evenings might also feature wine-and-painting workshops that let participants explore their artistic side in a social setting.
