9. Port of Call

Address: 838 Esplanade Ave.

This beach/surfer-themed bar on Esplanade serves what I and many others regard as the best burger in the city, so there's that. But often overlooked is the fact that the bar's signature drink, the Monsoon, is the best of the city's many well-known tropical drinks designed specifically to get you shit-faced. It's so much better than the hurricane or the hand grenade. And to top it off, the bar plays a steady stream of '70s hits, which for some reason feels just right here.
