Sweetwater Social

I get what they're trying to do at Sweetwater Social.  They want to give you the best of both worlds.  In one place you can have high end cocktails and low end games.  It may be the only place with a shufflepuck table and drinks fancy enough to be served with those giant ice cubes.  I really appreciate the attempt to combine two different vibes.  Just because you enjoy bar games doesn't mean you can't also enjoy a well crafted cocktail.  But is everybody as well rounded as me?

In an effort to be all things to all people, the shufflepuck table is about half the size it's supposed to be and the tvs seem like an afterthought.  But then small touches like patterned paper straws reflect the extra attention devoted to the bar menu.  Our crowd ended up a bit confused, not sure where to fit in between the dive/sports bar games and the elegant cocktails.  I anticipate, however, that the bar will be adored by 25 year olds who want a fancier night out but aren't ready to move to quiet wine bars.
