You know the saying about everybody working for the weekend? Those days are long gone. The 9 to 5 is slowly starting to go out of style. With remote working on the rise, the need to compartmentalize all of your activities to Friday and Saturday has all but diminished. It’s not uncommon to meet up on a Monday night, throw back a few beverages in style, and go about your life on your own schedule, with your own agenda. Here are 5 of the hottest bars that you can hit up on a Monday.
This exclusive prohibition style bar is accessed through a secret entrance. Since this discreetly placed watering hole only has capacity for 22 patrons, it’s best to make a reservation ahead of time. If you’re planning ahead, you’re also always welcome to get on the reservation waitlist. This might sound intimidating at first, but most good things are worth waiting for. Boasting 27 signature drinks and the most attentive barkeep you’ll ever lay eyes upon, you and your company will feel like hideaways imbibing on the most lavish of libations as you are serenaded by a piano quietly humming away from a dark corner. The Laundry room is open from 6pm till late, so you’ll have plenty of time to get ready.

Velveteen Rabbit is smack dab in the middle of the Arts District. Boasting twelve taps and 20 bottled beers, the Velveteen Rabbit doesn’t just stop there. With cocktail offerings made with the finest of spirits, and only the freshest local produce, there is sure to be a flavor profile waiting specifically for you. If the drinks bring you in, the atmosphere will keep you there. Their eclectic spaces feature local art, vintage furniture, and an outdoor patio that will invite you to stay. Velveteen Rabbit opens at 5pm, so you can stop by for a drink before checking out the rest of the Arts District, or you can stay the rest of the night.
Sure, pregaming for a big night and playing a little bit of dress up might seem like fun to some, but that requires planning, right? For those still looking for an exotic experience, but have a taste for the lowbrow, then this is the place for you. Frankie’s is open 24/7, so you can just skate on in whenever you’re ready, and the barkeep will be waiting for you with a wide array of mixed island cocktails that will pack a hearty buzz. While some bars have a more exclusive vibe (and there’s nothing wrong with that), Frankie’s will allow you and your friends to be a little more boisterous and sit around a little bit more bamboo.
If you’re looking for a quick bite, but would like to stay for a solid group of unique beverages, then The Mint Tavern may very well be the place for you. Open 24/7, The Mint Tavern has just the right kind of bar food to help you soak up the night after painting the town red with your crew, and the drinks are as delicious as their descriptions are verbose. Don’t be fooled by the unassuming look from the street, if you end up on one of the barstools here, you’re going to have a great time.
