We dropped in on a whim when a nearby bar was too packed, and we're pleasantly surprised by the bluegrass band that was playing. This is not a new school 40 beers on tap bar. This is a long-time establishment. Grab a PBR or whiskey...More

We slipped into this late night spot after a show at the Cedar Cultural Center, and we were greeted warmly and treated very well at the bar. The bartender, Seneca, seemed to know everyone, and was able to make conversations easily. Great dive atmosphere, funky...More

Palmer's the last real dive on the West Bank and one of the finest watering holes in town. Big cheap shots and mixed drinks (nothing fancy), some good taps, and if you're hungry they have heggie's pizza. Good live music most nights of the week,...More
