Drinks: Family-friendly

  • Bringing your kids to a bustling downtown bar on a Friday or Saturday is bound to earn a few judgmental glares. But fear not you can seek shelter at the Bywater. Bring the dogs too. The bar sports picnic tables games such as corn hole and horseshoes and grills for cooking hot dogs for the kiddos. All of this is accompanied by the gentle flow of the French Broad River. It’s like a backyard block party. — K.S.
