Inga's Alpine Tavern
This spot in the former Pete's Patio Bar is a kitschy mix of rustic simplicity and retro elegance with solid bar fare and live music. Inga’s was inspired by a Swedish ski cabin, and the battle-scarred hardwood floors look as though they've been deliberately dented by the stomp of ski boots. Meanwhile, tufted, swiveling, brass-studded bar stools are proper perches for imbibing, a dated jukebox blasts tunes that span generations (think Tom Jones to Vampire Weekend), and the back patio is the perfect après-anything escape.
