Founded by a posse of Kentucky-area natives, Trifecta On 3rd distinguishes itself with an enormous bourbon selection and a gourmet bar menu heavy on specialty pizzas. These house pies include the Southwestern chorizo, made with fresh, golden corn and cilantro, and the Fireball, which scalds mouths with jalapeños, serranos, habaneros, and, when in season, the notoriously nuclear Ghost Chili. Between bites, patrons can escape to Trifecta's expansive patio lest their ear-steam obstruct others' view of the interior's seven flat-screen TVs.

Servers carry in pots of piping-hot mint and jasmine teas, pouring them into colorful glasses laid out on silver trays. Wafts of sweet hookah smoke drift through the air as players toss balls on the gravel bocce court.
