Invite the friends and head out on the town for a drink.

The Golden Girl Rum Club

Golden Girl Rum Club in downtown Springfield, Missouri137 Park Central Square, Springfield

Picture a tiki-bar atmosphere where rum-based drinks rule, but there’s also homemade pizza, spiced-up tater tots, tacos and a DJ that often pops up for some late-night tunes to go with your rum-based drink. 

Big Whiskey’s

Multiple locations in the Ozarks

Buffalo mac and cheese bites, boom boom shrimp and fried eggrolls will go great with your favorite beer or that vodka mule you’re eying.

The Order

Cocktail at The Order

305 E. Walnut St., Springfield

You don’t need to stay at Hotel Vandivort to enjoy a great dinner and a strong cocktail at The Order. The menu here changes seasonally, but the smoked old fashioned is a staple on this spirits menu.

Lindberg’s Tavern

318 W. Commercial St., Springfield

This C-Street tavern has the best dive vibes, plus the drink specials are strong and always changing. Want a craft beer to go with your live music? It has that, too, plus burgers and a killer brunch that’s a must.

You’ll need the password to get in here, but once you’re in, you’ll never want to leave. Situated next to the Finley River, the fine dining restaurant and bar is rich in history and flavor, and the atmosphere is date-night, candlelight ready.

MudLounge

321 E. Walnut St., Springfield

The best part about this bar is that it feels less like a bar and more like a living room thanks to a mix of deep sofas and cafe tables. Even better, it has one of the most extensive beer lists in town.

Cellar + Plate

2916 S. Lone Pine Ave., Springfield

Low lighting and wine mix great with the tapas and the popular drag brunch and events at this lounge.

Vantage Rooftop BarVantage Rooftop Lounge Cocktails in Springfield, Missouri

260 E. McDaniel St., Springfield

Springfield’s only rooftop bar is glammed up. When there’s crushed green velvet seating paired with poke bowls, flatbreads and a brandy sidecar, you know you’re stepping up your street style before heading to this lounge. 

The Royal

1427 E. Cherry St. Ste. B, Springfield

Any of the draft cocktails this Wes Anderson-esque bar comes up with are delicious. Check the live music calendar for upcoming shows, grab a picnic table on the patio and enjoy the people watching along Cherry and Pickwick. 

Cherry Picker Package x Fare

601 S. Pickwick Ave., Springfield

You can order your wine by the glass or by the bottle or get a beer or a cocktail. It all depends on what you’re craving when you’re at this tiny bottle shop and cafe. Indoor seating is limited, but the patio is really where you want to be anyway. Just snag a table in the shade.

The Finley

The Finley

206 E. Elm St., Ozark

If it’s whiskey you like, head downstairs to the speakeasy, but if it’s a loaded bloody mary or a gin fizz you’re craving, then you’re in the right place. The bloody marys here come topped with giant Gulf shrimp, okra, pickles, olives and celery. You could almost make a meal out of it. Don’t forget to ask about the bottomless mimosas.
