Platt Park: Black Crown Lounge
This quirky South Broadway lounge is a charmer through and through. Occupying an old two-story home, it's filled with antiques for sale and host live-entertainment, ranging from jazz and showtunes to burlesque. Best of all, it boasts not one but two twinkling patios in front and back, where cabanas surround a koi pond and the servers offer blankets to stave off evening’s chill.
Must Order: Wine-by-the-glass pours are almost comically generous for the price (usually $10 or less). As for the selection of small plates, stick with the simple stuff, like deviled eggs and antipasto platters.
Insider Tip: Let this be a warning to some, a welcome sign to others: smoking is still allowed on the back deck.
