    do you want to dance, to hang, to eat but also you want bar ambiance and street fair ambiance but also disco ambiance? well, union pool is the best doing all that at the same time!

    This apparently strong hook-up bar boasts a pretty great outdoor area, larger than its indoor bar. There’s a taco truck out back and a ton of beer options. Read more

    Been going her for years. Not huge bar when you go in, but the outdoor area has a fire pit in the winter, a taco truck all year round, and a small music venue, plus it's great for singles. Don't forge

    A total casual place if you want a chill night out with friends. Drinks are eh, but omg there is a great taco truck tucked in the backyard! The backyard is a fun place to be in the summer.

    Union Pool shows start late, but that’s okay – the patio is awesome, and the crowd is always friendly. Dip your feet in the pond in the summer, and bring your own marshmallows to roast in the winter. Read more

    Frequent the taco truck in the courtyard at the back and chill on the wooden benches or firepit rim. Dance to live music in the back room, and check out the photo booth.
