District Bar & Grill
When it comes to entertainment, District Bar & Grill leaves nobody in the dust. Throughout each month, live musicians—from local dueling piano acts to national touring bands, like Hinder and Filter—fill District with their catchy riffs. As they play, so do sports teams on flat-screen televisions throughout the bar, as well as players racking up games on in-house billiards tables. To accompany all this visual stimuli, the grill’s cooks whip up an extensive menu of bar classics. Those range from slow-cooked pork and chipotle aioli sandwiched into paninis to wings tossed in over 10 sauces, including peanut butter and mango habanero.
