Not many people know where to go for this old-school speakeasy, let alone how to get on the list for admittance. While Parlour may not be as secretive as the speakeasies of old, it's still something of an exclusive club. This swanky lounge is known for its dedication to handcrafted cocktails, such as Butterfly Kisses, which combines high-quality vodka, cranberry-hibiscus syrup, lemon juice, demerara syrup and egg white. A side entrance can be found if you know where to look, and there's also a secret entrance from the Grape and Grain Exchange (a reputable bar in its own right), located in the heart of the historic San Marco district. Once you've found your way in, this is a bar you'll want to visit again.
