The beer roster (twenty regularly changing options on tap, nearly sixty bottle choices) impresses with on-point tasting notes, but Ormsby’s most deserves a mention because it’s an awesome hangout. The remarkably warm, subterranean space in Westside’s White Provision complex entices throngs nightly for billiards, bocce, darts, shuffleboard, and backgammon. To find the entrance, look for the door marked with the scribbly “O” on the right side of the building.

Drink This: A sip of the puckery Orval Trappist ale will keep you alert.
