Are you a fan of fruity, colorful martinis and cocktails? The frou-frou tropical drinks that have umbrellas with pineapple and flowers along their rim, like we’re spending our summer days on the beaches of Hawaii?
We recently reached out to our Facebook friends to hear the dirt on all of their favorite spots in town to grab a colorful drink or a relaxing glass of wine. Be it for date night, girls night, or your average Thursday, these are our top recommended spots for grabbing a cocktail this summer.
Whether or not you are a seafood person, Bonefish has a delicious selection of fancy drinks. We have heard great things about their martinis. Try a pineapple martini for us! Their outdoor patio is ideal for lunch or dinner as it is often in the shade. You can also take a seat at their bar inside if you prefer not to sit in the main dining room. Their classic Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer would be a great addition.
Located in the heart of Haymount and right next to the Cape Fear Regional Theatre, Latitude 35 is a local favorite. With its beachy vibes and laid back atmosphere, the bar and grill definitely needs to be added to your bucket list. They host trivia nights, have half-priced wine on Wednesdays, music bingo and margaritas on Thursdays, and live music on the weekends! Whether it is a first date, lunch, or birthday, Latitudes’ atmosphere and menu are sure to impress. One Yelp review says that they have the best Hendrick’s martinis ever.
Circa 1800 is on the rise in our community, with a unique southern comfort style menu and often hosting events and groups with specialty items. They are big supporters of the downtown mantra to eat and drink local, which we are also in favor of. If you are looking for a brunch spot, look no further! You can build your own Bloody Mary or enjoy a North Carolina beer on tap. They strive to use as many local ingredients and products as possible, from honey and grass fed beef to spirits and drafts. You can sit at the bar or patio if you prefer for your cocktail.
Grapes and Hops has multiple locations and provides a variety of wine, craft beers, brewing supplies, wine gifts and cigars. You can pair your drink with a cheese while you enjoy the atmosphere and affordable prices. The three locations in the area include one in Fayetteville on Ramsey, the second in Cameron off the 24, and the third on Footbridge Road in Hope Mills. They have hosted such events as prohibition parties and wine walks.
The Wine Café is located in downtown Fayetteville, right by The Market House and next to its sister shop, The Coffee Cup. The atmosphere is laid back and relaxing, with wine tastings, glasses or bottles, all for sale. They often have live jazz and other fun events such as yoga or military Mondays. They combine a unique concept of a wine shop and tasting room and are owned by a local business woman and veteran’s spouse. They believe that good wines are meant to be enjoyed every day!
Antonella’s is one of Fayetteville’s favorite Italian restaurants and their patio is a great spot to stop and sip a fruity drink this summer. Take in the full atmosphere of downtown Fayetteville at the restaurant’s great location on Hay Street and enjoy supporting a local establishment at the same time. They have a bar and cozy dining room inside for all of your foodies needs.
