Silhouettes - 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, Silhouettes kicks it into another gear. The place usually keeps it going 'til way late-guaranteeing a late and out-of-control night.

Cruisers Tavern 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 Cruisers Tavern

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.

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).

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...
