This funky little spot in Cooper Young opened in 2013 with little fanfare but loads of fans; chef Karen Carrier's hip little nightspot almost transports you to another country. Decorated with treasures from around the world - and plenty of tag sale chic - DKDC offers small plates with an international flair and yummy libations with a guaranteed kick. The crowd is slightly hipster but that shouldn't scare off you traditional types, as the setting is comfortably eclectic. Cocktails are served up in an array of containers, from Mason jars to juice glasses, and include twists on tradition - like a blackberry julep. Bar DKDC isn't like most of the spots on this list of live music venues, being more intimate and low-key. And sometimes, that's the best live music venue of all.
- Best for Live Music Because: The music is eclectic, like the surrounding - think small combos with lots of soul.
- Best for Bars Because: If you plan to stay late for the music, be sure to be in the door by 9 to claim a seat.
- Best for Nightlife near Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium Because: We love Bar DKDC for its chill atmosphere and low-key nightlife, and you could walk from the bowl.
