Brandywine Prime (1617 Baltimore Pike, Chadds Ford, Pa., 610-388-8088) sees Chadds Ford’s best and brightest mingle at the sleek bar, sipping champagne martinis and Sauvignon Blanc by the glass. The excellent raw bar is within arm’s reach.
Chesapeake Inn (605 Second St., Chesapeake City, Md., 410-885-2040) and its tiki bar are awesome in summer for frozen drinks, live music, deck menu and people watching. It’s the hoppin’est place on the canal.
Great handcrafted beers—especially the smooth Unicorn Ale—make McKenzie Brew House (451 Wilmington Pike, Glen Mills, Pa., 610-361-9544) worth the quick trip over the state line, and a revamped downstairs nightclub is attracting a fresh customer.
