One of the most friendly bars in uptown is State & Allen Lounge. The selling point of the lively hangout is its extensive wraparound patio, perfect for sipping fine wines and people-watching. One side of the bar features a bistro-style interior, with wall-to-wall wine and aged bourbon selections, while the other boasts several tables and flat-screens for game days. State & Allen Lounge manages to strike a balance between both casual hangout and upscale lounge, and attracts mostly young professionals and their amicable pets.
