Park Place Tavern Inc is the type of place you start off your night. The drinks are cheap and strong but the crowd isn't the type to get the party started. Grab a quick drink here and then head out to the real party. -Review of Park Place Tavern Inc

Monkey Bar
(802) 655-4563
30 Main St
Winooski, VT
Description
Monkey Bar - Dress up. Monkey Bar isn't necessarily "formal," per se, but it's sexy and sleek; this is the kind of place where if you're dressed like a tool, you'll stick out like a sore thumb. (Probably more than a sore thumb, actually-those don't really stand out when you think about it). The point is: it's a solid place. Bring your A-game.

Magic Hat Brewing Co
(802) 658-2739
5 Bartlett Bay Rd
South Burlington, VT
Description
Magic Hat Brewing Co, located at [Address], is your garden variety pub. It's not going to win any raves of "Hottest. Bar. Ever.," but it's a serviceable place to relax and unwind. Just keep your expectations grounded. And there's something to be said for beers that cost less than $14 bucks. Review of Magic Hat Brewing Co.

4 Lincoln Pl
Essex Junction, VT

Higher Ground
(802) 654-8888
1 Main St
Winooski, VT

Higher Ground - Here's the problem with most bars: the vibe sometimes dies around 1am. Luckily for you, when most bars are sweeping up the floors and closing shop, Higher Ground kicks it into another gear. The place usually keeps it going 'til way late-guaranteeing a late and out-of-control night.

Essential Bartending Equipment

By Russ Cobbe

Setting up your own home bar can be great fun when you have people over. It isn't overly expensive to get all the essentials. So what are the tools of the trade you'll need to show off to your guests?

Paring Knife/Cutting Board - Used to cut up lemons and limes for garnishing along with other fruits in certain drinks.
