    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.

    Get there early and drink pints of PBR for about $1-1.50. East Side King is out back so don't forget to grab a bite. Texas Mules are 👌. P.S. It's 21+.

    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

    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!

    Cool bar, & the Thai food truck rocks. Get the pork belly steamed buns & the Brussels sprouts salad & the fried beets no matter what!

    Amazing bar and great backyard with the best food truck ever. The chicken buns and beet fries are so ridiculously good.

    Unlikely to retain its charm, due to food journalism coverage and the construction of condos across the street. Enjoy until!

    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?

    Beet hash browns? You know you want some, and Liberty's food truck around back can deliver some liberty to your tastebuds.

    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.

    Shawn Sprockett · December 22, 2013
  • Ricky R.

    Go out back to the patio and order some beet home fries or the fried brussels sprout salad. your life will be changed.

    With cheap drinks, an extensive backyard and East Side King, it's hard not to spend a day drinking here.

    Price is right. Atmosphere is tits. East side king is making up some crazy food out back too.

    The east side king trailer is legit. Try some curry buns. Oh and the bartenders are rad!

  • J Catherine T.

    The women's restroom is cramped and dirty. You'd be better off using the port-a-potty on the patio.

    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.

    Cool bar but what really makes this place is Bravo's Top Chef Paul Qui's Eastside King trailer!
