Make your way up the leopard print stairs and into the stylish Casimir's Lounge, the sultry top-floor bar located inside the Mansion on Forsyth Park. The lounge is known for its crafted cocktails, delicious bites, and Bösendorfer piano, which fills the air with jazzy tunes. Jazz and blues musicians come from all over the South to entertain the crowds that gather in the lounge. Be sure to try one of the Savannah-inspired cocktails, like the 700 Drayton Martini or the lime-infused Savannah-Grita during your visit to Casimir's Lounge.
Situated in a renovated building that was once home to the City Hotel, Moon River Brewing Company is a restaurant, bar and Savannah's only microbrewery. A varied menu includes quite a few vegetarian options. Imaginative appetizers such as Oysters with Pecan Pesto and Ginger Cured Salmon with Wasabi are worth a try. Fried sweet potato chips are a house specialty. And of course, your server will insist you try one of Moon River's micro-brewed beers with your meal.
Don your cowboy boots and head to Saddle Bags for a wild night out during your stay in Savannah.

They say 'Never Judge a Book by its Cover' and in the case of the Wormhole, that platitude may hold true.

Apart from live music events, the venue also presents theatrical works and other performing arts.
While the Tree House might not actually be located in a tree, it is certainly one of Savannah's coolest balcony bars. The club features wood-paneled walls and "trees" growing up through the roof, which makes the space feel like you really are in a tree house. Tree House puts on weekly specials, including comedy nights, live bands, and themed parties. The club can accommodate up to 200 club-goers, which means Fridays and Saturdays can get pretty wild.
Audience participation is not only encouraged at this dueling piano club, it is required!

Shows start about an hour and a half to two hours after Savannah Smiles opens.
After a hard day at work, one wants to relax and hang around with friends; if you are looking for such a place, then Congress Street Social Club is the best bet.
