Ten Best Bars for Cocktails in Palm Beach County

4. Hullabaloo
If you're in the mood for a handcrafted cocktail, head to Hullabaloo in West Palm Beach. This Rodney Mayo establishment recently made the year's "best of" list for new restaurants in 2013, churning out gastropub-style Italian with precision and creativity. Likewise, the bar makes one hell of a drink. Here, everything behind the bar is the real deal. How real? You won't find a single bottle of simple syrup, and we think that says something. Instead, it's all about doing things from scratch, deployed with high-end spirits and house made liqueurs to serve flavorful, intense drinks with no artificial ingredients.

HMF brings classic cocktail culture to the Breakers in Palm Beach.
3. HMF
The HMF, which opened in 2012, is Palm Beach's only craft cocktail bar. Located in the Breakers, it's named for the hotel's founder, Henry Morrison Flagler, the railroad magnate and original partner of Standard Oil who helped to pioneer the development of South Florida. To keep with tradition, HMF is a sophisticated lounge meant to evoke a sense of nostalgic, high-class Americana glamour. Here, the long and elegant bar is matched with a sprawling lounge area where both locals and resort guests can drink and dine in secluded style. Styled after the speakeasy-era cocktail bar, HMF offers a full menu of signature, handcrafted drinks ranging from the traditional concoctions, to the experimental, with innovative twists that include all the usual trends like freshly made ingredients, elixirs and sodas Another unique touch you won't find at any other bar -- the cigarette girl. Inspired by the social cocktail clubs of the 50's and 60's, think of her as a sort of high-end server offering various tastings of specialty items, be it an aperitif or specialty dessert sample -- anything to enhance the cocktail party experience.
