Whether it's Dr. Who, tiki, the Midwest. clowns, horror, German, or Bike-themed, these bars and restaurants know how to take an idea and run with it.
This downtown "dinerant" has the best of both words with its sloppy chili dogs and poutine, all in a fine dining atmosphere.
Grab a cold brew in a boot, a pretzel, and hopefully an open bar stool at the always bustling Prost! It can get hot and loud as groups of friends gather—but as long as you're with yours—you won’t want to scoot.
Like an ancient Tiki carving, it has history too: a recent transformation from the old Thatch Tiki bar to Hale Pale under the watchful eye of Blair Reynolds (known for his line of cocktail syrups). There couldn't have been a better marriage between Hale Pale and Lilkoi, which brought the little bundle of Hawaiian "crack" bread to the menu.
My Midwestern roots give me a soft spot for any bar that has meat raffles, Old Style, rice crispy treats and sausage.
Bike, family, & eco-friendly, this bar is has a lot of friendliness goin' on. If your bike is still in storage, no one will judge.
