Juniper

41 Cherry St., Burlington, hotelvt.com

Creative cocktails and a ritzy Hotel Vermont location make this bar and restaurant a prime destination for classing up your game — perhaps with jazz on Wednesdays. Local bands and DJs play on the weekends, adding to the spot's chill, retro-chic vibe. In warmer months, unwind outside by the fire pit.

The Archives

191 College St., Burlington, thearchivesbar.com

What's better than a classic arcade with booze? A classic arcade with excellent booze. The selection of old-school video games and pinball is outshined only by the well-curated beer and cocktail menus.

Daily Planet

15 Center St., Burlington, dailyplanetvt.com

Low-key and sort of hidden in plain sight, the Planet is where the locals go to get away from college kids and sip nifty drinks such as the espresso martini.

Dedalus Wine Shop, Market & Wine Bar

388 Pine St., Burlington, dedaluswine.com

Someone had to class up the arty/industrial South End. Dedalus features an astonishing array of wines to suit most budgets and an ever-changing menu of small and medium plates. Try the charcuterie.

Drink

135 St. Paul St., Burlington, facebook.com/drinkvt

House-infused vodkas give cocktails a creative twist; sip yours on a swanky black leather couch. There are drink specials every day of the week.

Mule Bar

38 Main St., Winooski, mulebarvt.com

Thoughtfully sourced brews and interesting bar bites are the backbone of this hipster-chic hitching post.

The Whiskey Room at Rí Rá the Irish Local

176 College St., Burlington, rira.com

It's a room. With whiskey. Actually, it's a really nice room, with really nice whiskey — 150 regular and rare blends. Careful, now.
