  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining
A sign behind the bar commands patrons to "Drink Like An Adult," just above a list of their selection of American-bred whiskeys. In a neighborhood full of younger bars catering to trendier crowds, Poison Girl stands out for its maturity. It's the bar for when you grow out of dance nights and just want to drink something strong to unwind from working for the Man. Before the smoking ban passed, this place was a Marlboro-sponsored sauna. But PG expanded its back patio to accommodate the smokers and give the less-heartier lungs a break. On weekends, it is hard to find a place to sit, inside or on the patio. So come early to stake out a spot at one of the chalkboard tables, complete with a stick of chalk to do your filthy doodles. The row of pinball machines on the back wall is sure to pique your interest by beer three. We highly recommend the Family Guy game.
