Man caves can't be beat. But sometimes after a long day, a little luxury can go a long way.
Evolved from your run-of-the-mill sports bar, Mister Collins epitomizes casual sophistication: clean walls, ocean views, and leather accents.
Rather than brush the sawdust off your bar stool, you'll pull up a leather chair by floor-to-ceiling windows to order dinner.
No fish and chips here. Instead, start off with the softest baked pretzels you’ll ever sink your teeth into, paired with spicy mustard and sharp cheddar dipping sauces.
Then work your way to the tender filet mignon with crispy fries and a glass of Fog Dog red for some real comfort food. Save some room for a side of mac & cheese with chunks of crab meat.
Grab your wine and make your way out to the oceanside terrace to finish off the evening.
Park it on the couch and steady your glass on the wooden table while taking in the view. And take comfort in the fact that you don't have to hide out here.
This is the rare man cave you can take your girl to, or meet a new one.
