Best Pick-up Bar

The New Palace Cabaret

At the New Palace on a warm Friday night, both inside the bar and all along the line-ups, there’s a gladiatorial air, a heady haze of booze, sweat, young hormones, and the anticipation of getting, one way or another, pounded. To quote the Red Hot Chili Peppers, it’s blood sugar sex magik. Now into its third decade, the New Palace is the perennial BOH winner in the cheap, fast, automatic and likely to be regretted in the morning category. 1721 Brunswick, 420-0015

1st runner-up: The Dome, 1740 Argyle, 422-5453

2nd runner-up: Reflections, 5184 Sackville, 422-2957
