It's a fairly typical restaurant and bar chain, but it's less populated by fraternity and sorority members than other local bars.
The food is sketchy, but nonetheless, students flock here, mostly on Monday and Thursday nights. Fridays can be a little quiet, so prowl around for action elsewhere.
Las Palmas Mexican Restaurant & Bar
On Friday and Saturday nights, this place is filled with students drinking overpriced margaritas and enjoying themselves.
Mark II Lounge (The Deuce)
An institution, if only because it stays open until 4 a.m. and offers sports on TVs and pool tables aplenty. It's not high class, but if it's a drink you're looking for, a drink you will find here.
Pete Miller's Seafood & Prime Steak
This is a cool spot with great steaks. It's a little more suitable for a drink and a date than some of the other bars around town, and there's free jazz-a terrific combination.
With good food and excellent drinks, this new establishment has been raking in customers. It's a lot more low-key than other bars, so expect the more crunchy, artistic types to patronize this place.
Tommy Nevin's Irish Pub
There are English and Irish taps, so beer drinkers' interests are always piqued here. This hip night spot was recently renovated and serves up delicious meals, as well as hot music acts.
