Zum Barrel Tavern puts a German spin on the sports bar. Mimicking a Bavarian beer hall, the sprawling gastropub features long, high-top communal tables. In true sports-bar fashion, 23 televisions look over those tables, providing a constant stream of sports coverage and German vocabulary lessons. Venture outdoors into the German-inspired beer garden, which includes a barbecue pit and covered patio seating.
From behind the gleaming wooden bar, bartenders slake thirsts with 32 draft beers, including popular American craft beers and German staples, such as Spaten lager and Bitburger pilsner. Chef Matthew Lynn complements these brews with sauerkraut-laden bratwursts and other pub food, such as sauce-glazed wings and sandwiches loaded with slow-smoked brisket or rotisserie chicken.

Upon their arrival, visitors to Crescent Moon Wine Bar and Restaurant will be faced with a difficult decision?they'll have to decide on a wine. The extensive list spans more than 300 selections available by the glass or bottle. Then they'll have to select something to nibble on, perhaps the beef short ribs slow cooked in a Shiner Bock gravy or the filet-and-shrimp surf 'n' turf accompanied garlic truffled mashed potatoes.
And the whole time, they'll be distracted by their impressive surroundings, including stone-arches soaring high above them, stone walls, and a stage where live bands play nearly every day of the week. In front of this stage is an open space, and they'll have to decide if they want to dance here alongside the couples or organize a game of Freeze Tag.
