America's Best Outdoor Bars
Courtesy of Forest Room 5
The candlelit interior’s rustic timber bars, walls, and mismatched chairs set a log-cabin tone accented by the kinds of multimedia art you’d expect from a contemporary art gallery. But it’s the patio by fire pits and a babbling brook in the lower Highlands area that makes Forest Room 5 extra special. Patrons can sip cocktails like the Beez Neez or Spiced Pear Tree Martini in tree-shaded alcoves, bird-watch, and enjoy projections of wildlife-themed film clips. The bar also hosts monthly viewing events for artists.
