The scene is always lively at BBC Tavern and Grill, where happy-hour prices on food and drink Mondays through Wednesdays keep regulars coming back, and where frequent guest bartender nights draw new friends by benefiting local nonprofits.

The Bottle & Cork calls itself “The World’s Greatest Rock ’n’ Roll Bar.” In its 80th season, it’s still rockin’. This is where you discovered the Dave Matthews Band before the rest of the world caught on, where you went to see legends like Buddy Guy and where you’ve blown more Saturday afternoon jam sessions than you care to recall, getting blasted to local favorites. At least, that’s how you remember it.

1807 Coastal Hwy., Dewey Beach, 227-7272

Editors’ Pick

Upstate
Don’t be distracted by the, um, tongue-in-cheek name. Lewinsky’s on Clinton is a welcoming tavern with a great pub-grub menu, specialty cocktails and craft beers. But it really lets loose on Sundays with a Bloody Mary bar that includes a tableau of hot sauces, garnishes from olives to scrapple and a dollop of toe-tapping blues music to really spice up the works.

92 Clinton St., Delaware City, 834-8000

You’re feeling the joy at colorful Lula Brazil. You need a caipirinha. You can get the traditional lime cocktail or opt for any of several other flavors, like pineapple. Or try it with vodka, known as the capiroska, in the same flavors.
