Best Place to Play Connect Four: Liquid

Warehouse District bars are good for two things: dancing and prancing. But while Liquid is just as snappy as its West Sixth neighbors, it also has a quieter side, best shown by the board games piled near the couches. True, the trendy watering hole is too loud to get a good game going on the weekends. But it's worth making a weekday trip. Happy-hour drinks are a bargain, service is attentive, and you may even get a couch -- perfect for lounging around and plotting the perfect four-in-a-row.
