Behind a furniture store, facing a parking lot through an unmarked door is Bardot, which is probably the single best addition to the live-music scene in the past couple years (okay, so, that’s debatable, music snobs, but we really heart Bardot). This speakeasy-esque venue doesn’t just play host to some of the coolest DJs in pretty much the whole world (we’ll put Questlove in that category) but hosts local jam sessions from soulful groove to “Miami strip, neon and pastel sun-kissed, deep nu-disco” (you can catch that at the upcoming Chris Malinchak show). Order the Honey Mule, a hand-crafted ginger beer with vodka, and kick it back. Did we forget to mention the spicy peanut noodles or shroom buns you can get next door at Gigi after?
