A very pretty bar that looks like a cross between a dollhouse and Grandma's screened-in veranda, the Hop & Vine is a perfect playland for grownups. You can sit in total comfort at candlelit tables, getting completely silly on bubbly, and never look anything but respectable (also, gorgeous—the vanilla lighting flatters everyone). The beer list contains no boring choices and the menu is several steps above ordinary pub food. Try the puff-pastry chicken pot pie, or a fennel-and-bacon salad. Too mature for you? Check out the mystifying row of weird figurines perched over the door. BECKY OHLSEN.
