5. Emerald Lounge at Revere Hotel
They call it Emerald Lounge, we call it a hidden gem. Going for "grown & sexy" rather than just "grown," the Lounge hosts dance nights with top local and national DJs and features funky modern touches to the architecture, like the green-hued iron sculpture twisting across the ceiling. But the decor is easily outdone by the cocktails: we recommend the jalapeno tequila-infused Pepino En Fuego.
