Best place for drinks?

I am going for a short weekend trip next week to WDW. Just wondering where is the best place for drinks? Not in the parks, but at any of the resorts or DTD.

Depends on where you are staying but...

The Poly has the Tamu Tamu Lounge,
The Swan and Dolphin have Kimonos, Il Mulino, and Bluezoo
Animal Kingdom Lodge has Victoria Falls also Sanaa has a bar/lounge
The River Roost Lounge at Port Orleans if Ye Haa Bob is there
Territory Lounge at Wilderness Lodge

Splitsvillle at Downtown Disney has a cool bar too!!!

The bars at both Animal Kingdom Lodge resorts are great: Sanaa, Jiko, Victoria Falls.

Territory Lounge at Wilderness Lodge is very nice, and is near MK, as is Mizner's in the Grand Floridian. Belle Vue Lounge at Boardwalk is great over at the Boardwalk, and between DHS and Epcot.

Overall, I lean toward Victoria Falls as a destination, and a dedicated bar, although it is pretty far away from other stuff. Belle Vue is second.

I like The Wave at the Contemporary Resort. They have good organic wine and beer flights, and the lounge has a nice atmosphere.

The Wave has some delicious cocktails as well.
I like Raglan Road as well, for grabbing a beer and watching some live music.

My favourite place to drink at Disney World has got to be the Belle Vue Lounge at Boardwalk Inn

My favorite is the lounge at bluezoo. The mixologists are very trained and knowledgable there and they have a fairly extensive drink menu.

So many great choices.

-Sanaa has a beautiful rather quiet bar with a great wine and beer selection
-Rix Lounge at CSR is really nice, kind of a club like atmosphere, we have met friends for drinks there and it was great
-Can't go wrong with the Tambu lounge in the Poly, seats can be hard to come by.
-Mizners inside the GF is nice too, especially when the band is playing
-Raglin Road great bar and entertainment

Looks like you are staying at POFQ.
RiverRoost at POR is a great place for drinks and entertainment! Yehaa Bob is fantastic. But don't go if you are looking for a quiet evening.
Bellevue is great and so relaxing. Tambu, Mitzners and Crews Cup are good places too!
