Whether you’re headed out for an after-work pint or getting into late-night shenanigans, Siné fits the bill for the downtown crowd. With Guinness and Harp on tap among other brews, there’s something for everyone. And there’s plenty of whiskey to go ’round as well. You can soak up all that booze with a hearty helping of creamy baked potato soup, fried pickles or Irish nachos. The spacious interior made from imported parts from the motherland makes it a hit with larger parties. And if patios are your thing, Siné has a sizable one perfect for checking out folks heading out and about to other nearby clubs in the Slip. Speaking of patios, Southern Railway Taphouse has tons of outdoor room overlooking the Turning Basin, with a mix of professional and party crowds filling out the scene and a long beer list. And Saison is a good spot for soaking up the character of Jackson Ward.
