Rockaways
With a name like Connolly’s, you’d expect the booze of choice at the dark-wood bar to be Guinness. But the draw of this by-the-surf Irish pub is, of all things, a piña colada. Tucked beneath an old Victorian beach house, the beloved basement tavern lures off-duty lifeguards, neighborhood firemen and fresh-from-the-swell surfers with its coladas and vodka-spiked frozen pink lemonades. The potent icy drinks come discreetly in Styrofoam cups—easy to sneak onto the beach—with a boozy floater for a buck extra, but the friendly bartenders are known to pour the added shots with a smile and an “on the house.”
