Time just seems to stand still for this always-bustling, trend-less North Side joint.

Always-bustling North Side bar and grill with Southwestern flair. – The Scene
By day, Roadhouse is a Southwestern bar and grill serving up burgers and beer; nights, it feels more like a club with a DJ and jammed dance floor. One side of the room is lined with old car seats; vintage gas station signs add more character. For those with an affinity for the bar culture of the '80s, saddles attached to the bar provide a perch for doing tequila shots.

The Draw
A jovial crowd fills the dance floor (later moving to the top of the bar), shaking it to everything from house to honky-tonk. If dancing isn't your thang, you can shoot pool, view a little college roundball and catch a game on TV sets showing 'round-the-clock ESPN.

A pretty good time... – This place is like three different bars in one. In one area, you have the "Coyote Ugly" type bar with attractive bartenders shouting things over the PA. In another is a dance area complete with tv screens, a dj, body shots, and girls dancing on the bar. And a third area is dimly lit and has a couple pool tables. Try and get a party on a Friday, you get in for free and there's an hour of free drinks. Prices are average, bouncers can be friendly (although why they make you stand in a line outside is beyond me - there's no reason for it). Try the Blue MotherF*cker... a little expensive but well worth it.

Go for the smokin' bartender! – This place is a dive, but at around 2 or 3 it really picks up. Not a whole lotta girls, but there is one girl who does a great job giving shots. I don't know how much you pay, but she puts you into a saddle, on your back, and then grinds like a pornstar headliner until you want to "happy time" all over the place. Didn't do it, but she could move her body, and made for a nice show, and compensated for the lack of females.
