Best Bar for Spending Way More than Expected

Spur Gastropub

For those of us who like our bar food cheap and greasy and our cocktails classic and simple, the idea of a fancy-schmancy place such as Spur Gastropub makes us wanna get drunk and throw up on someone in protest. And yet, after sampling one of this angular, sparsely decorated haunt's $9-plus signature cocktails (try the absinthe-based "Lover's Lock") and its sexed-up pub grub ($10 chicken confit instead of $5 chicken tenders), you'll be ordering another round from your bartender and another plate from chefs Dana Tough and Brian McCracken. Even in these financially neurotic times, a $67 tab for two never went down so easily.—Kevin Capp
