This is the place for trendy shops, restaurants and nightlife. A place for fun bars and not far from the center of the city.

Unless you are a twenty something year old D-bag looking to start some trouble, find some skanks and piss on someone's walk way, there are better spots all around town to eat and drink. Sure there are a couple of great craft beer spots and burger joiunts in the southside, but visit them for happy hour and get the hell... More

If your looking for something to on any given night, hit the southside. Its full of good eats, treats and drinks. It is mostly 21 year olds on weekends though and certain sections can get kinda nasty crowd. I wouldn't recommend being out later than 2am down here. Large police presence always.

South Side is the place to be for the young millennial crowd. Plenty of bars and restaurants within the 28 blocks of Carson Street.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Southside and walked along Carson Street and had dinner in a couple of the restaurants along the way. Very eclectic neighbourhood with lots of tatoo parlours. A bit seedy at night.

This is one of the Hot areas. Bars, Clubs etc all on One street or strip. I say stop and ask local what place to go. I am sure you will get many answers as I did. The Best part is you can try most as you are bar hoping. great way to discover the City and learn new things.

Definitely experienced local flavor on the way. His shop had so much music related stuff, hubby could have stayed and perused forever. Dave was... More

If you like bar hopping this is the place. Start at jack's bar and work your way down the street. Too many bars to name.
