The Escondite is one of those downtown spots that you either know about or you don’t. And if you do know about it, you don’t want anybody else to. That’s because this somewhat hidden bar/restaurant kind of has it all: live music, no cover, excellent drinks, solid bar food, and a cool vibe with great patio views of the downtown skyline. Just don’t tell anybody.
