Another excellent spot downtown, on the same block as Sotto, Boca, and Nada, is Igby’s. This spot is definitely one of the coolest places to go and get a few drinks. When I’m heading out for the night, I like to start here and enjoy the happy hour, which is pretty sweet. From four to eight, you can get twenty dollar bottles of wine, three dollar domestics, and other specialty options. It tends to get pretty crowded at night, which is a testament to its popularity, however there are multiple floors and in the summer there is outdoor seating in the alleyway. Architecturally, the layout is stunning. There is a second floor that opens up to the whole space below with balcony views of the lower level. I’ve been here with groups of friends and family, with just Kenny, and with just girlfriends, and no matter what kind of hanging out I am doing, it’s the perfect spot. I consistently head back because I know it will have a fun and social energy to it, which makes me feel like I am really going out.
