The fact that Porco's is in the heart of neither Ohio City nor Tremont gives it the hipster cred this year's votes imply. South of the main West 25th Street strip, Porco's serves up huge, exotic cocktails in tiki-inspired glasses. As the former home of biker bar Cranky's, the original hipster hotspot, Porco's comes from solid stock, though it's a favorite of middle-aged suburban moms as well, who get a kick out of the giant, flaming cocktails. You don't need more than one drink at Porco's, that's for sure.
