Cheers to my Sippin Gypsy Team Vodka! This post comes to you while enjoying a Sippin Gypsy Sorbet Sparkler with peach sorbet (gotta love those Georgia peaches!)
Savannah in all her southern hospitality offers some amazing and progressive spots for tastin' and sippin'. Just a quick reminder: Savannah doesn't party all night, enjoy live music at a lot of the bars along Bay Street, River Street or the City Market area, but grab a bottle of your favorite spirit for the hotel room so you can keep sippin' if the city slumbers before you do.
1 The Olde Pink House
Yes, the building really is Pink! One of Savannah's most celebrated restaurants, this is a must do in Savannah for classic southern cuisine in a charming historic setting. Each room is elegantly appointed and offers a delightful experience for lunch or dinner. Most evenings the restaurant is booked, so the moment you know your travel dates, make a reservation! If your travels to Savannah are more impromptu, try the downstairs bar for great music and cocktails.
2. Treylor Park
Progressive, modern and unique. This is what I love about cities that celebrate food and art. Unique and bold flavor combinations in a quirky comfortable environment. Please just try the Peanut butter and Jelly Hot Wings or Nachos Grande! This spot is also usually very busy. Set a reservation if possible. A few blocks up is their sister location Hitch. Either one offers great portions and those artistic flavors that make this a spot I visit every time I'm in Savannah
3. The Pirates House
What would a trip to Savannah be without a bit of pirates and plunder! This historic building is at the far end of the historic district. But its also a stop on either of the Trolley Tours. The gift shop is fun and offers unique trinkets that celebrate all things Savannah and Pirates. One of my favorite Bloody Mary's in Savannah is from Pirates House. Even though its out of the way, make time for it on your trek, especially since you can grab an extra cocktail to go and keep sippin and strollin.
4. Vic's On The River
Celebrating in Savannah? Vic's offers an elegant environment with a beautiful view of the river (especially at sunset!) Classic southern cuisine and an impressive bar, this location adds to your southern charm experience. As a huge fan of comfort food from the south, I was really impressed with Vics Shrimp and Grits plate.
5. Alligator Soul
Few restaurants wow me with every dish. Alligator Soul left a lasting impression on my pallet that I still think about a quick get away to Savannah just to visit this spot again. I was able to enjoy Alligator Soul for a special occasion and respectfully left my camera aside, but even though I don't have pictures to post yet, trust my words, this location is worth your time. My party and I were bold and tried unique proteins available seasonally under their "Exotic Specialty" and we were all glad we did. Please indulge yourself.
Lover of travel to charming places dusted with unique flavor. Join me as I explore the world sip by sip. Cheers!
