Best known for its frozen mojitos, this laid-back bar is literally in the neighborhood - it's a converted house surrounded by residential domiciles. Open every day from 7 p.m.-2 a.m., the Flat also serves Jamaican-American-style grub. Local artwork that gets changed out every few months hangs on the yellow walls, and DJ-spun house is the musical flavor of choice. Some say the Flat's most impressive feature is the back porch, which looks contemporary but feels like it's entirely made of found and recycled pieces. Here, patrons keep it quiet for the neighbors, and can actually hear each other's conversations.
