Earlier this month, we announced the winner of our readers' pick for best bar district, and Bay View won handily. So, when the field of choices for best bar in Bay View includes a whopping 23 selections, the big winner must be good.

Good is an understatement for 2010's top vote getter: Palomino, 2491 S. Superior St. It's not the oldest bar in the neighborhood, but it's one of the first to pull in drinkers from all over the city. Flanked by Cactus Club and Club Garibaldi, it's on the hypotenuse of the neighborhood's little triangle of cool.

Palomino's drink slingers also won top prize in the best bartender contest in the past , so you know you'll get good service. Add in a killer jukebox, tasty brunch and greasy, delicious trucker food like fried pickles and hush puppies (and a surprisingly large selection of vegan dishes), and you've got the recipe for one great bar. They make some mean Bloody Marys, too.

As for an endorsement, we love the bar just as much as our readers do. It's not surprising that 'Mino is a repeat winner in this poll. For our editors' pick, though, we decided to shed some light on another Bay View bar, Burnhearts. editors' choice: Burnhearts
