“The Best Bars of 2011″

The Marina finally got its upscale, taxidermy-clad, cocktail-serving haven free of the rowdy, collegiate vibe that spills out of the nearby sports bars. Designer Kendal Agins scoured flea and antique markets to enrich the space with baubles, quirky paintings, and button-tufted leather seating. Two pool tables, and a shuffleboard table provide a playground for decked-out patrons. To the delight (and chagrin) of many, there’s a dress code: no sneakers or workout clothing. In other words, leave the Lululemon at home, girls. The cocktail to order: Braveheart (whiskey, ginger syrup, honey, lemon, Angostura bitters)
