    If you're buying drinks with a card but want food out back later, be sure to ask the bartender to hold your ID instead of your card.

    The bartender with a beard is rude and confrontational. How do you not have time to make irish car bombs? Will never step foot in the place again.

    Cheap drinks + ESK curry buns and beet fries make this our go-to bar. Chances are you’ll run into someone you know on the back patio, and the communal benches mean you’ll be making new friends, too.

    Chill bar on the East side of 35 if you're looking to break away from the Dirty Sixth insanity. Cheap drinks, relaxed environment and most importantly an East Side King trailer in the back!

    Liberty is perfect for dreary, rainy nights, when it evokes a basement, thanks to the enveloping darkness. Easy to get to, easy to park, easy to say “Hey, I just want a drink real quick-like.” Read more

    The "Dive Bar" label doesn't do the smell (or attitude you'll catch from the hipster bartenders) justice. But hey, at least the beers are cheap, right?
