    Don't even try to use their jukebox. I completely wasted my money. They have a great selection of music on display but when you choose any song it resets to their generic hip hop bullshit music.

    During happy hour, which is EVERY DAY, get $2 PBRs, $3 wells, $5 frozen cocktails, and $4 shots of Jagers and Bulliet bourbon or rye. Read more

    Grand Prize's wallet friendly drinks, laid back vibe and kickass jukebox mean it will always have a place on this list. With Austin King's Yaki Snack Attack leading the kitchen, the food's good, too.

    Out of the 6 beers on tap, jacobins rouge sour ale is one of them. Not many bars in this town have sours on tap. I'm addicted. Try it.

    Awesome neighborhood spot over in the Museum District. Try the cool ranch Dorito breaded fried green tomatoes, and don't feed the hipsters

    Start with a Pimm's Cup and follow it with a Cucumber Wit for a lighter finish.

    Great place to relax and have a few drinks. Kind of a hipster vibe but they won't bother you.
