Derby Bar & Grill

Hampton Gold Club
(304) 366-6069
9006 Carriage Ln
Fairmont, WV
Description
Hampton Gold Club - If you have to work the next morning, we bet a thousand bucks you're going to call in sick. That's because Hampton Gold Club, at [Address], is open all night. So the odds of you getting a good night sleep are closed to zilch - we predict you stumbling home around 8am and flopping into bed, forgetting to brush your teeth. And nothing wrong with that.

Donnie & Nick's Players Lounge
(304) 333-0156
RR 7 Box 421b
Fairmont, WV
Description
Donnie & Nick's Players Lounge - They could have easily filmed a scene from "Sex in the City" here. With its posh décor and sexy, dimly-lit interior, Donnie & Nick's Players Lounge makes for a killer date spot. Located at [Address], it's a little classier than the pub down the corner.

Bee Hive
(304) 363-9874
463 Morgantown Ave
Fairmont, WV

102 Route 8

King's Tavern
(304) 363-1940

Copa Lounge
(304) 333-2672
1801 Locust Ave
Fairmont, WV
Description
Copa Lounge - It has it all: a swank atmosphere, attractive crowd, and cheap drinks. Okay, okay, so maybe it doesn't have cheap drinks, but Copa Lounge is still a solid lounge. Not really a dance club, per se, but perfect more a more upscale option.

Deja Vu
(304) 363-3120
1869 Morgantown Ave
Fairmont, WV
Description
Deja Vu - 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, Deja Vu kicks it into another gear. The place usually keeps it going 'til way late-guaranteeing a late and out-of-control night.

Longhorn Casino
(304) 366-4898
RR 3 Box 107b
Fairmont, WV
Description
Longhorn Casino - Beer, liquor and all other booze-it all ends up in the same place. If you're looking for a decent fueling station with moderate prices, [name] is right on the money.

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).

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...
