Valet parking is available and it’s a great place for groups to come out to on McKinney Ave. Come out and let loose on the dance floor, in this red-hued party space.

The Loon

Lines out the door? No, they’re not trying to make the place look busier than it is..it’s actually packed. Open 365 days a year with twentysomethings Thursday through Saturday. The fireplace usually garners a nice crowd and hats and tennis shoes are allowed.

Christie’s Sports Bar

Sure this place has pool tables, but they’re some of the nicest around. Don’t be surprised to find designer clad sorority girls chasing around the designer clad frat boys. Enjoy the game on a huge big screen, play some golden tee, or hang out on the outdoor patio.

The Capital Grille

Bodega Wine Bar

Wine connoisseurs and enthusiasts sip and swirl to this locally owned wine bar and merchant situated off the trendy Knox strip.  With an 18th century European motif, (lots of leather, wood, and fountains), it’s the perfect spot for a relaxing glass of wine after work, and is equally good for bringing a date.

Four Lounge

This tiny lounge is in Uptwon’s State-Thomas neighborhood.  You may miss it as it’s hidden behind an unmarked door next to the barbershop.  The drinks are amazing, so don’t let it’s size fool you.
