When you’ve exhausted the scene on Second Street and you’ve aged out of the Piazza, Bardot Cafe is here for you. This place is a little more grown up, from the candle lighting and leather booths to the pots of mussels you’ll be eating, but it’s still a fun spot where you can either have a chill dinner or a big night. If food is more a bonus than a requirement, stick to drinks at the bar during Happy Hour, which features half-off draughts and $5 bar snacks.
