Best Bar

  Readers, upstate: Dome Restaurant and Bar (400 Lantana Drive, Hockessin, 235-2600)
  Readers, downstate: Summer House (228 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-3895)
  Critics, upstate: Tuesdays with Jefe, Friday night DJ parties and enough street cred to last through the next century make The Deer Park Tavern the ultimate college hangout. And it’s the first place alumni want to stop when they return to campus. It still works for townies, and it still works for the Harley set, too. “It’s just a great college town atmosphere,” Keeler says. (108 W. Main St., Newark, 369-9414)
  Critics, downstate: After more than 70 years of existence, it’s perhaps more interesting to notice the things The Bottle & Cork doesn’t have. “We don’t have chairs,” Pires says. “No glassware, no silverware, no napkins. If you’re fussy about that stuff, you’re in the wrong place.” The Cork is still a bare bones, old school rock club. There aren’t many like it left anywhere. That’s why the likes of George Clinton, Robert Randolph and Dwight Yoakam continue to perform there. (1807 Highway One, Dewey Beach, 227-7272)
