    Cool bar with a nice outside patio area. Food truck in back. Definitely dive bar vibe with the option of a Pug Mug. Yes. A Pug Mug.

    Cool, divey atmosphere and great outdoor seating. I hope the new apts going up nearby don't ruin this spot.

    Once upon a time Shangri-La was even more magical and complete with its own East Side King food truck in the backyard. Alas, how the times have changed.

    Check out the Capitol building, if you are lucky you may run into Rick Perry's Optometrist!

    Ton of hipsters lol!!! Everyone was pretty cool. Love the loud music on the jukebox! Me and friends stuck out like a soar thumb. Pool tables, sick patio, and old arcade games!! I'd go back for sure!

    The kickass, always-packed patio here can keep us happily captive all evening. Even if you don’t feel like drinking, it’s worth the trip just for a steamed bun from food trailer East Side King.

    Perhaps it is the giant patio, the ’90s arcade games or the big selection of bottled beers and drinks, or that Shangri-La is one of the first bars you see on East Sixth keeps locals coming back.

    If you're on east 6th you need to stop here. Nicest staff all around and sickest jukebox selection.

    Sock Hop last Sunday of every month. Who wouldn't want to dance to classic 50's tunes (and some that play homage). Step away from the sweaty hipsters to take a breather outside on the HUGE patio. Read more
