Staff Picks: a bar, a barre and a restaurant

Sweetwater Bar & Grill

Picked by Nancy Kumpulainen, Art Director

“I can’t believe it took me this long to discover this place, but I’m glad I finally did! It’s literally a hidden gem, nestled within an apartment complex. This speakeasy-style restaurant and bar with a contemporary subculture vibe serves exceptional craft cocktails, craft beers as well as small and sharable plates. I had their grilled Spanish octopus and spinach artichoke dip! Yum! My favorite libation so far: the Mexican cockfight.”

Cardio Barre of Coral Springs and Parkland

Picked by Taryn Tacher, Web Editor

“My mom and I went to a cardio barre class after work the other day. I was expecting to test my flexibility and maybe sweat a little, but I was mistaken. The class was so upbeat. We were constantly moving, and we were moving quickly. It was a great workout, and I’m looking forward to going back.”

Matteo’s Trattoria

Picked by Tim Schwab, Group Advertising Director

“Matteo’s is one of my new favorite restaurants. The burnt veggies are amazing, and so is the fish. The dessert was a real wow!”
