Tiki lights, billiards and mounted moose only add to the fun at this crowded college hangout, a favorite since 1975. – The Scene

An energetic, barely legal crowd packs the two rooms and patio of this U of M favorite.

Guys and gals on the prowl fill dimly lit coves while high-fives ring out where cue sticks hang. A tiki-like canopy, lights and all, stands tall over a well-stocked bar. From the front patio, you can watch the hustle and bustle of Highland Avenue. Nights start slow but get packed well into the wee hours.

The Booze

Young crowd? Think shooters. The Easy is most famous--Stohli's-orange and cranberry juice makes for easy drinking. Most beers are on hand for everyone else.

While You're There

Live music and billiards are the draw. Pac-Man still holds things down in a small, quasi-arcade. Cheap pub grub, including a damn tasty marinated chicken sandwich, is served every night until 2:30am.

Kicks Ass – Newby's is the classic bar. Old brick, red vinal booths, moosehead, 4 pool tables, huge patio, strong ass drinks, classic arcade games, 14 TVs, and killer music. It's the bar that has been ever changing since the 70's, yet really has never changed. Sure there's always a new young crowd every year, but you'll still run into the same regulars that have been coming for the past 15 years. The bartenders know everyones names and some have been there for 15 years...and of course we can't talk about Newby's without mentioning Chef Willie. Everybody knows him and he knows the clientel better than anyone. This place is a classic!
