Set right on the river, Byblos is where the northeasterners flock on their way home. Of course, you don't have to be a northsider to want to join the fun.
Perhaps this is a spot best saved for Friday shenanigans — it makes for quite the party to look forward to as the week ticks by. When the working grind is done, Byblos just wants to have fun with happy hour from 4pm to 6pm, live music from 5pm to 8pm, and a great Mediterranean-inspired tapas menu to keep you extra content.
Just make sure you factor in some time to peruse all 24 pages of the booze menu if you're staying past the designated special window. Otherwise, pick from five beers on tap, three wines and six basic spirits, or the biggest $10 cocktail list you're likely to find.
