    Nice environment.. Happy hour ends at 7:30pm or so- don't miss it or you'll pay a lot extra. Also, get the drinks with the awkward dirty names (ie dirty nipple).

    Live music great for sing-along. Saloon-like atmosphere so wear your jeans and boots. Delish fruit-flavored cocktail called the Wowo.

    This fantastic dive bar from another era caters to the tourists, but we come here for the atmosphere, the cheap prices (cash only) and the bartenders. Opens at 7am!
