What are some good/fun drinking spots?
I'm just going to name a bunch and you can decide what you're looking for.
Blind Bear (replaced Bar None on South Main mall) - it's a speakeasy. Like them on FB to get the password to avoid cover. It's laid back.
Silly Goose (used to be where we went before they opened Blind Bear, they are kind of similar).
Flying Saucer - waitresses wear short skirts. Best beer selection. Live bands most weekends.
Tap Room - this is on Beale, but it's a little hole in the wall. If you're there on a Thursday night, check out the blues band that plays there starting at 10 p.m.
Earnestine & Hazel's is definitely a late night place. Supposedly haunted. Also used to be a brothel.
Raiford's - if you get really shitfaced by midnight and want to dance at a disco with light up floors (and pay $15 to get in) go here.
