Jake's Corner Bar 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 Jake's Corner Bar

Lighthouse Lounge
(989) 895-9208
1125 S Water St
Bay City, MI
Lighthouse Lounge - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Lighthouse Lounge 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.)

Bell Bar
(989) 893-8381
1314 Columbus Ave
Bay City, MI
Bell Bar - Some bars are legendary. The kind of watering hole that you'll remember for most of your life. Bell Bar? It's not one of them. Located at [Address], it's pretty much your vanilla bar. Which isn't a bad thing.

Trix's Pub
(989) 894-5341
2307 Broadway St
Bay City, MI
Trix's Pub - You might see a celeb here. But he/she will probably be on one of the many flat screen TVs lining the walls. Trix's Pub is the place you'd likely go to to watch that big game but you'll probably have so much fun, you'll stick around longer.

(989) 895-9553
1616 Broadway St

Circle Bar

1700 Woodside Ct

Green Hut

Green Hut - There's not much to be said about the cocktails at [name]. They're not necessarily cheap, but they're as tasty as they are potent...a delicious and dangerous combination.

Stocking up your home bar

By Russ Cobbe

Last week we discussed what bartending equipment you should have in your home bar. This week we will cover the ingredients you need to complete the setup of your home bar.

Your main selection of alcohol should include 750ml bottles of the following: Gin, Vodka, Rum, Bourbon, Scotch, Tequila, Vermouth, Red and White Wine, Brandy, Port & Sherry plus whatever liqueurs are most palatable to you and your friends. The most popular liqueurs to have would be coffee, orange, irish cr�me and cr�me de cassis.

Next up would be bitters. Bitters are made from a variety of roots, barks, berries and herbs. They generally add a bit of zing to your drinks. You should have Angostura, Peychaud's, Orange and Abbotts Aged bitters.

For mixing you'll need a good variety to make a lot of different recipes. The standards include multiple bottles of Mineral water, cola, ginger ale, club soda, tonic water, lemon/lime sodas and fresh juices (orange, pineapple, lemon, lime and tomato). Don't forget to have lots of ice on hand. If you make your own ice use bottled water so you don't get a chlorine flavour to your drinks. Ice should go in the glass first to avoid splashing and to cool the ingredients as they get added.

Finally you will need some things to garnish the drinks to add that special touch. The essentials include cocktail onions, stuffed olives, lemons, limes, oranges, strawberries, celery stalks, Tabasco sauce, maraschino cherries, pineapple...
