Meehandering the 312: Bars

We’re back with another of “Meehandering the 312” and this time it’s all about bars! These were pretty hard to compile because there’s so many options in the city.

You’re not ready to go home at bar close: Big City Tap

You just want to see a turtle race: Big Joe’s


You want a grown up Chuck E. Cheese but not quite Dave and Busters: Headquarters

You’re reminiscing on college bars and beer prices: Hook and Ladder

You want to go out downtown but avoid the club scene: Stout

You want to go out downtown and love country music: Old Crow


You like 90’s music and photo booths: Hopsmith
