Best Hidden Bar

Dante's Tap Room

The pint-sized pub is surrounded by nothing but Mother Nature, offering relief from the cacophony of the Warehouse District. Inside, the decor is sparse -- just a few rickety tables, an old wooden counter, and the owner, Kathy Scharff, chain-smoking away in the corner. But while the aesthetic is provincial, the roster of beers is expansive: everything from Sapporo to Warsteiner. Scharff's mean whiskey sours alone make the trek worthwhile.
