RED YETI | PHOTO: TYLER STEWART The Silver Dollar. But there it sits in downtown New Albany at 109 E. Market St. — a bar where you can get a high-end cocktail or craft beer, or a Hamm’s for $1. It’s Southern Indiana’s answer to Louisville’s late-night scene. Its counterpart in Clark County is The Alcove, 246 Spring St., Jeffersonville, which seeks to bring a slice of Louisville to Southern Indiana with a range of drinks from top-shelf cocktails to a beer and a shot for $5. The Alcove seeks to appeal to wide variety of tastes, and is open late. MORE TO EXPLORE In Jeffersonville a must-visit is Orange Clover Kitchen & More at 590 Missouri Ave., a can’t- miss breakfast and lunch spot with hearty, but fresh sandwiches and soups made with DKD BENTO BOX | PHOTO: TYLER STEWART carefully-selected ingredients. For a fun dinner complete with a people watching session, visit Parlour, just off of the Big Four Bridge, 131 W. Chestnut St., a pizza and beer mecca with an in-demand patio that features lawn chairs, corn hole and fairy lights. For a more intimate dining experience, try Portage House, 117 E. Riverside Drive, a Southern-inspired, chef-driven restaurant carved out of a historic home that gives an unrivaled view of the Ohio River and the Big Four Bridge. Also worthy of note in New Albany are Hull & High Water, 324 E. Main St. for your fish-and- chips fix with a stellar outside dining area; and Floyd County Brewing Co., 129 W. Main St., already had a reputation for a great outdoor atmosphere and live music, and with the purchase of their neighbor’s former storage building, the restaurant and brewery has nearly doubled its outdoor space, as well as its beer selection. If you want to sample the flavors of the world, you can do that, too, in Southern Indiana.

Market St.; the Middle East at the family-owned Aladdin’s Cafe, 37 Bank St.; Cuba at the musically-infused Habana Blues Tapas Restaurant, 320 Pearl St.; or Mexico at the chef-driven Israel’s Delicias de Mexico Gourmet, 1515 E.
