A-Town Bar and Grill

Patio/Rooftop, Bar

Editorial Review

Earlier this year, Caribbean Breeze’s owners decided to give the tropical restaurant a complete overhaul. Farewell salsa nights and rum drinks, hello A-Town Bar and Grill, a stripped-down spot with sliders, chocolate martinis and cornhole games on the expansive patio.

The indoor bar has a modern feel, but it’s the covered 100-seat outdoor space that will be the draw for the next few months: Two cornhole games sit near the building’s “waterfall wall” of rushing water, and customers sipping cocktails take over the low, bright-red cushions that serve as lounge furniture. (Just watch out, because hookah smoking is allowed outside.)

Happy hour runs from 3 to 8 p.m. daily, with $5 appetizers, $2.50 domestic drafts, $3.50 microbrews, $4 rail drinks and $5 glasses of red and white wine. (There are also $5 mojitos, a signature item at Caribbean Breeze.)

The cocktail menu is as long as the food menu, and most of it reads like a mix of old “Sex in the City” trends: think key lime pie and mocha martinis. All drinks run $8 to $10.

DJs spin a mix of hip-hop, Top 40 and club tunes from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Thursday through Saturday, and there’s never a cover charge.

Awful and disgraceful

This used to be my favorite bar but I will never go here again. My friend, who is a U.S. Marine, happened to be wearing fatigues when he arrived at the bar. The bouncers said that fatigues are not allowed in the bar. My friend said, "But I am a veteran," and the bouncer responded by saying "Get over it." Regardless of any dress code rules, I have never witnessed such disrespect towards someone who has served our country, and I will never support this bar again.
