There is no better place to enjoy a sunset-filled happy hour than the vibrant, summery Boat Basin Cafe. Although the food is overpriced and average at best, the elixir of sunshine and alcohol create an intoxicating atmosphere, making it the ideal headquarters of summer.
Although it is located under the West Side Highway, the noise at the Boat Basin Cafe seems to come exclusively from the crowds of yuppies enjoying beers and drinks by the water. With plenty of seating and standing room, the large space is perfect for groups of any size looking to embrace cold beers, frozen margaritas, and otherwise fairly basic bar and grill foods. Regardless of its uninformed menu and lackluster staff, the special location and relaxing space make it a fun, local favorite in the warmer months.
