Best New Fern Bar: The Guesthouse

Best New Fern Bar

The Guesthouse

1321 N. Mills Ave., 407-630-6574

Though not strictly a fern bar, the new drinking spot that popped up in the former Peacock Room space offers the same sense of grown-folks amorous possibility as those storied pickup bars of the '70s. Tasteful decor – with, yes, plenty of green plants – flattering lighting and well-built cocktails are the trademarks of the house built by former Bar-BQ-Bar principals Ashley McCammon Dishman and Hurst Marshall. We can't promise you'll get laid, but we can't think of a better bar to go looking right now.
