Port, which replaced the Dewey Beach Club in March, is trying to stand out in its party-hearty beach town. Yes, it has live music three times a week, including a no-cover Thursday jam with guitarist Paul Cullen, who played bass in Bad Company in the early '90s, and an acoustic "Sunday Funday" jam with happy-hour deals. Signature cocktails include the lip-smacking Blood Orange Crush - blood orange vodka, blood orange juice and soda. And a breezy screened-in patio offers a place to enjoy warm nights.
But the bar itself is small, with around a dozen stools, and most of the space is given over to a restaurant that specializes in cooked-to-order seafood from local providers, accompanied by locally grown produce. The focus on meals instead of booze seems to be working - on one visit, a bevy of bachelorettes was gathered around a dinner table instead of the bar. Think of this as the place to eat a good meal before heading down the block to Ruddertowne or a nighttime destination when you want something more laid-back than the Starboard.
