Crowned Miami New Times' Best Neighborhood Bar/North in 2008, Billy's Pub plays gracious host to a four-course spirits and stogie soiree. Patrons first choose vodka, bourbon, or scotch, and then swig on three drinks from the selected liquor tributary prepared in any combination of straight up, mixed, or semi-gaseous. With tongues and tummies properly marinated, lips and dexterous chin dimples can then puff on an aromatic, tobacco-leaf roll-up in such brands as Ashton and Dunhill. Sidle over to the pool and beer-pong tables, or exhale a smoke cloud to blind foosman goalies for a game-winning corner kick.

Like its imaginative cocktails, Ricochet Bar & Lounge's décor mixes a wide variety of distinct elements to create an alluring final product. Tufted walls, purple marble accents, and reclaimed wood swirls around a 90-foot triangular bar that serves as the lounge's centerpiece.

Ricochet's food menu adds to the artistic ambiance, mollifying pangs of hunger with mini paninis, guava and lime lollipop ribs, and other innovative small plates.
