Mike's Gemini Twin

The Cedars bar is often labeled a dive bar, but there’s nothing shabby about Mike’s. Sure, the name sounds like a hard lemonade drink inspired by an early 2000s girl band, but Mike’s Gemini Twin is a refreshing cross of swanky and unpretentious. The bar has pool tables and a mystery stripper pole that’s roped off and not to be used — no matter how tempting and how gifted of a pole dancer you believe yourself to be after a few glasses of Champagne. Unintentionally, the pole also serves as a perfect symbol of the bar’s delightfully contradictory ambiance. It’s no wonder it’s a magnet for scenesters.
