You know when you walk into a friend’s home, and it is so welcoming that you feel like you may have just walked into your own house?

It might sound crazy to some people, but there are some bars and restaurants that actually give us this exact same feeling

There’s just something about sitting at a bar top, whether you come in alone or with a friend, and striking up a conversation with one of the employees. Some bars are able to translate an atmosphere that is honestly quite homey, and maybe that’s why many of us never want to leave….

I think it’s really cool that a majority of these bars are locally-owned, by friends, family, and community members that we have come to know and love! So yes, it is exactly like walking into an old friend’s house where everyone knows your name and remembers your favorite drink!
