Dave's Place - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Dave's Place is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)

Jack Rabbits
(904) 398-7496
1528 Hendricks Ave
Jacksonville, FL
Jack Rabbits - Dress up. Jack Rabbits 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.

(904) 737-8233
4351 Phillips Hwy
Jacksonville, FL
Centerfold - It has it all: a swank atmosphere, attractive crowd, and cheap drinks. Okay, okay, so maybe it doesn't have cheap drinks, but Centerfold is still a solid lounge. Not really a dance club, per se, but perfect more a more upscale option.

Blender - If you don't already have one, get a good one that has good speed and power. Nothing is more annoying than waiting 5 minutes to crush up some ice or blend a drink.

Combo Corkscrew/Bottle Opener - Obviously needed to open that fine wine or bottles of beer that don't have twist tops.

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

Shaker - Used for mixing various drinks.

Bar Strainer - Used in a lot of cocktail recipes to stain out ice that might have been used to cool ingredients in a recipe. It looks like a little paddle with lots of round rings on the end.

Lemon/Lime Squeezer - This has a flat collector base with a raised pointed section in the middle with ridges. Its used to squeeze out fresh lemon or lime juice.

There are over 20 different styles of glasses from brandy to wine. Did y...
