While there’s nothing quite like relaxing with a drink in hand in the evenings without the kids, sometimes it’s nice to have a watering hole that has space and a play area to keep the little ones occupied, while you enjoy that drink (or two) – undisturbed.

With a huge park for the kids to play in and a weekend-only bouncy castle, this little gem on the East Coast offers an extensive bar list with great eats, so sit back and relax with a glass of wine, while the kids nibble away on delicious wood-fired pizza!
