When rugged cowboys of the 19th century were in the mood for some drinking, they often stopped into coolly lit lounges for small-plated organic meals and freshly shaken cocktails to please their delicate palates. Today's Groupon pays homage to that age-old tradition: for $15, you get $30 worth of creative cuisine and inspired spirits at Liege Spirits Lounge.

The Old Oakland lounge serves up a constantly changing menu of fondue and shareable fare highlighting the culinary and vinery delights of a specific region. The most recent, Japanese-inspired menu offers broiled pork belly over shaved cabbage ($10) alongside roasted garlic edamame ($4) and a savory roasted mushroom miso soup ($5) with black Hawaiian sea salt. Liege's suimono fondue pots ($14) are served tableside with their own continuous flame and come with your choice of sirloin or white prawns, a side of mixed vegetables, and a house-made dipping sauce. Each sauce is rated according to hotness from a scale of one (yogurt epazote) to 12 (habanero and pineapple) to 40 (lava and ice cubes made of infernos). Wines by the glass ($7 and up) change with the menu and are specifically chosen to complement the themed cuisine like two 45-degree angles.

The seductive lounge features exposed brick walls lit by warm under-lights and cozy couches for curling up with your favorite sock puppet or one of Liege's signature cocktails, such as the Runnin’ with the Devil ($14), a potent whiskey and absinthe creation, and the Lady in Red with Effen black-cherry vodka and soda-spritzed muddled black cherries (on the rocks, $10). A chocolaty velvet curtain separates the lounge's two rooms, preventing rival cheerleading squads from having a dance-off in the middle of the establishment. Quirky touches, such as tabletops designed to mimic manhole covers and walls painted with cherry branches supporting antique automobiles, lend a comforting, whimsical feel to the swank scene. Invite the dashing dentist or dentista of your dreams to ignite a budding romance with a saucy meal and freshly shaken cocktails.

Not valid for happy-hour items.

  • Swanky, yet unpretentious, this place makes you feel sexy and comfortable all at once. – Ann W., Yelp
