Located across the street from Big Spring Park in Huntsville, Rhythmn on Monroe has to be one of my favorites. At night, the entire building will be lit up with bright lights, and you can hear jazz music all night long. Plus, Rhythm on Monroe has a ton of signature drinks, including:

  • The Mars Mules
  • Back in Blackberry Mojito
  • Honky Tonk Whiskey Woman
  • My Paloma
  • And more!

2. Pourhouse

The Pourhouse is “comfortably swanky.” It’s certainly designed for customers to feel relaxed while enjoying a view. Their rooftop consists of sturdy bar stools and nice umbrellas to keep you shaded from rain or too much sun. The downstairs patio has a lounge area with armchairs and couches. The Pourhouse is the place to go for a chilled vibe or fun date night. The fun consists of foot pool tables, bocce ball courts, swings, a water feature, and live music. The Pourhouse only offers drinks so while trying out some of their exotic beers, cocktails or wine be sure to taste some other wonderful selections at the Stovehouse.

3. The Martin Bar and Bistro

The Martin Bar and Bistro is located right in the heart of downtown on Washington Street. The Bar is on the second floor above Sammy T’s Music Hall! So, for my party people, this would be a great place to pregame before the party! Here, Happy Hour is Tuesday thru Friday from 11 am-6 pm! $1 off all drafts, $3 Well Drinks, and Domestic bottles. Delicious brunch and starters such as Biscuits & Gravy, Shrimp & Grits, fried Mac ‘n Cheese Bites, Sriracha Shrimp, and more!

4. Stella’s Elixir Lounge
