If you're a beer connoisseur then The Milk Bar should be on your list of places to visit. Located in the up-and-coming Milk District neighborhood, and named for its location next to the T.G. Lee milk factory, this bar carries over 80 different types of exotic brewskies. Perch yourself on one of the comfortable couches while listening to a local musician work his magic, or pull up a chair for a round of Scrabble.
Paxia Alta Cocina Mexicana & Tequila Lounge
Not only is this one of the best Mexican eateries in the city, but it also houses a Tequila Lounge. An entire page of the lounge's drink menu is dedicated to tequila blanco (served in the purest form), tequila reposado (rested) and tequila anejo (aged, vintage). Happy hour menu specials include $1, $3.50 and $5 bites to nibble on while enjoying the premium tequila, margaritas and beer. Tequila tastings are often available, ask your server for the details. And for sports fans: flat screens are mounted on several walls so you won't miss your game.
