East of Eden
Why locals love it
Arcadia: Greek province dating back to ancient times. Pure and harmonic; almost Edenic. Thank God Arcadia Liquors isn't so banal. The rabble's discordant: boisterous yet laid back. The only harmonies purr from the speakers. Nature's painted or potted. Vices are pure and the bartenders know their way from bright tequilas to Dark and Stormies.
Why you should visit it
Utopia: a fallacy. An impossibility. We humans are too flawed. We'd never be able to agree on what true harmony is, what real equality is, and yet Arcadia somehow makes you feel like the impossible is possible. Just for the night. Not in a gross, kumbaya, let's all vomit rainbows sort of way. It's just... how life should be. Everyone's welcome.
If you want to bar hop this is a great place to start. The Dock, The Angry Pirate and The Bearded Tit are all very close.
