1932 NE Broadway, 288-3333,
swift-lounge.com. 4 pm-2 am daily.
Small, comfy and low-lit, Swift Lounge is probably the classiest-looking joint to have ever offered a $4 bucket of Four Loko. Thankfully, the bar doesn’t appear to have been staking its success on the patronage of frat boys and homeless drunks, so the recent ban shouldn’t affect its clientele much. It instead prefers to show off its various infused liquors, sitting in large jars on a shelf behind the counter, and its selection of hot “dranks,” including the $7 Bacon’s Rebellion made with—wait for it—bacon-infused vodka. MATT SINGER.
What to drink: Seriously, you’re not going to try the Bacon’s Rebellion? Then how about Churchill’s Breakfast, with whiskey, maple syrup and cider?
Happy hour: $3 drafts, $4 house wine, $1 off sangria and 16-ounce Mason jars 4-8 pm Monday-Saturday and all day Sunday.
Entertainment: Pinball, board games, Centipede.
