3 Of The Trendiest Bars In The US


A lot of people dream and talk about opening their own bar. The business is recession proof, right? How could it fail? Unfortunately, like restaurants, many bars can fail too due to poor management, lack of direction, and a handful of other causes. While there are many types of bars you can open such as a sports bar or a live music bar, one of the challenges is starting a trendy bar. These three bars stepped up to the trendy challenge and conquered.

Boulevardier – Dallas, Texas

Boulevardier offers up a trendy, elegant atmosphere. The bistro’s interior design features exposed brick, gold-trimmed mirrors, and lavish finishes. An extensive wine list and handcrafted cocktails add to the overall experience. What really elevates this bistro to the next level is its fare. Oysters, octopus, lamb, rabbit, and much more can be found at this gastropub-esque location.

Rolf and Daughters – Nashville, Tennessee

Rolf and Daughters, located in Music City, is another bar that has established itself as “trendy”. The interior features pendant lighting and exposed brick walls and ductwork. The design itself screams gastropub but the food and cocktails are what people coming back. Squid, butternut squash, rigatoni with lamb pancetta, and some of the most unique cocktails around highlight the menu. So whether you’re down in Nashville for a bachelor/bachelorette party, couple’s weekend, or just to check out the music scene, head to R.A.D. for some epic food and drink.

Luc Lac Vietnamese Kitchen – Portland, Oregon

Another trendy bar and kitchen is located in Portland, Oregon which coincidentally is becoming quite a trendy vacation spot. The city boasts some of the best breweries, wineries, and restaurants around. Luc Lac Kitchen makes the list because of its uniqueness. The menu features Vietnamese fare which also happens to be a very trendy cultural food. Vermicelli noodles, Pho, and Banh Mi sandwiches are making their way into the vocabulary of many Americans. Luc Lac also has handcrafted cocktails including their own Luc Lac lush that has jackfruit, coconut cream, lychee jellies, and scotch.
