With room for perhaps 30 patrons at a time in its cozy and beautifully restored nook, which boasts a lovely enclosed patch of rooftop for outdoor imbibing, occasional live music and (va-va-voom) burlesque, it's a space that back in the late 1800s was, in fact, an actual cobbler's shop. These days, Hanson's Shoe Repair is a modern-day speakeasy in a romantic upstairs enclave on Pine Street. Call a number and they'll text you a password if they've got space. Hanson's serves an array of Prohibition-era-inspired cocktails with a focus on quality bourbon. They do a mean champagne cocktail, as well.

- Bars: "Adamant about not waiting? Thumb your nose to the overrated concept of "fashionably late," particularly on weekends, and make Hanson's your 8 pm starting place. Especially if you want an actual seat."
- Best for Bars Because: Ambiance, history and gracious bartenders (almost unbelievable in such hip surroundings) garners Hanson's placement. Once inside you'll feel like a member of an exclusive club.
