PS Lounge

recommendation by dreww

If Pete's bartending, every girl that walks into this place gets a rose. And possibly a free Alabama Slammer shot. So this joint's got class, but only to a certain point. Spend enough time here and it just starts to feel like your grandpa's basement, with old posters, football helmets lining the walls and an old-timer getting you bombed behind the bar. The joint hasn't changed an ounce in the last couple decades, but that's what makes it so charming.

Fat Cat

recommendation by grege

Imagine walking into a prohibition era basement that is fully equipped with your grandparents’ furniture. Now add a $3 cover, non-stop flowing PBR cans, live jazz, and ping pong balls flying around like flies drunk off feces. All this is a typical night at the legendary, but still somehow secret, Fat Cat. Located in New York City’s West Village, this venue is a surreal mash-up of live jazz, ping pong, chess, pool, scrabble, shuffle board, hipsters, suits, college kids, and thrill junkies.

Tommy’s Thai

recommendation by grege

fresh & funky

Tommy’s Thai offers a variety of Thai and Chinese food, with plenty of vegetarian-friendly options. Most of the dishes offer you the option of beef, chicken, shrimp, streak, tofu, and/or veggies. There’s a good variety of spice-level selection and not a single item on the menu runs above $9. The atmosphere is always casual and comfortable and the architecture gives off a mod-type vibe. Parking can be somewhat of a problem, but finding a spot in the neighborhood shouldn’t be too hard.

Sputnik

recommendation by grege

Located at the west end of the Washington Park neighborhood in Denver, Sputnik has been making a name for itself since opening in 2003. Come for Sunday brunch, bottomless mimosas, $3 bloody mary’s, and a unique menu with a slew of veggie options. Pass the time between food and beverage with the $2 photo booth located near the entrance. There's usually someone spinning vinyl during the week and you can’t go wrong with the happy hour pricing and the corn dogs.
