Located in the Highlands, Occidental Bar is the neighbor and unlikely sibling of upscale Williams & Graham. Proudly punk and casual, Occidental gives dives a good name with its savvy bartenders, excellent cocktails and all the punk tunes you love. Think dive with just the right amount of class. For game watching, Occidental has large-screen TVs and if you happen to be a fan from New York, this has become the place to watch the Giants, Rangers, Knicks, Mets and Yankees. Occidental's well-curated beer list includes options from local and national craft breweries, and while the menu has some familiar bar options such as burgers, healthy diners and those with various preferences have options, too, including items that are gluten-free vegetarian and even vegan.

- Sports Bars: "Happy Hour runs all day Sunday, from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays and 4 p.m.-6 p.m. weekdays."
- Recommended as Best Nightlife Because: Sometimes you want high-end and sophisticated, sometimes you want low-key and utterly unpretentious. Occidental Bar is the latter, giving dives a good name.
- Best for Sports Bars Because: Occidental Bar is plain and simple a great neighborhood bar and a nice option on game days.
