Louise's Downtown

Louise's Downtown is probably the coolest hole in town. Sure, the place is dark and dingy and it smells, and there is that ONE bartender who is a complete ass but he's probably just mad at his dad or something. That just goes to show that you shouldn't give power to insecure people. Perhaps you can remind him that he's in the SERVICE industry on your way out the door. That leaves a seat for me. You see, I don't go to bars to interact with the help. I go to interact with the patrons and the people who post up at Louise's are fun. Ranging from redneck to chic and everywere in-between, the crowd is eclectic enough for anyone to walk in and find someone or something to their liking. I don't know if they have food, because I'd never think to eat in a place like this, but they do have shitty beers in big cups and good beer in bottles, and sometimes that's good enough for me. I like the music, the lights are low enough that all the girls look good, and pool. They have pool. I fell in love at first sight.

Red Lyon Tavern

Make no mistake. There are only two cool bars in Lawrence, and this is one of them. The other one is Louise's, by the way.

The Granada

I've been to the Granada twice for shows that were advertised as "free" online and by the artists, and both times I was charged at the door. I don't care how storied their history is, the fact is that the Granada does not deliver what they advertise and that is just bad for business. I won't be back, and it is a shame because it is a nice little venue.

Quinton's Bar & Deli

Limited menu, good food, great service, nice drink specials. Clean, ample room for lunch, dinner. Family friendly early. Crowd is mostly obnoxious, style-bankrupt, cookie-cutter frat types later. Deal with it, though, you're in a Kansas college town.
