Black Bear Saloon roars back at growling stomachs with pub-style American eats dished out amid the cheers and jeers of an energized sports bar. Perched along the walls, more than 25 flat-screen TVs broadcast big games as diners voyage through waves of russian dressing that flow between the Kodiak sandwich's layers of turkey breast, bacon, and swiss cheese. Late-night menus keep guests content past midnight, and entertainment events, such as live shows by DJs and local bands, accompany bites while snuffing out the other senses' plans to go on strike. Staying true to its outdoorsy influences, Black Bear also offers the Cub Campfire dessert—a chance for diners to make s'mores right at their table.
At the bar, 20 beer-tap handles stand ready to tip forward and fill frosty mugs, which staffers slide alongside plates crowded with classic pub entrees. Guests can rub their molars against pulled-pork sandwiches and Cajun burgers or nibble away at Pour House sliders or cheddar nugget appetizers. Diners looking for meatless fare can graze on caesar or roasted-vegetable salads.
Undisputed Sports Bar and Grill entertains a wide array of customers. Being a sports bar, diners can compete in beer pong or settle in for broadcasts of NBA games and MMA fights while they enjoy wings and burgers. However, Undisputed Sports Bar and Grill also keeps patrons moving with music from live DJs, who spin everything from hip-hop and top 40 to rock and Latin beats. The bar has even been known to host glow parties and beach-themed parties.
Black Bear Saloon may have all the wood paneling of a Wild West watering hole, but it boasts many modern amenities, including plasma televisions that deliver sports from around the globe thanks to a DirecTV sports package. It’s inside this lively space that cooks keep stomachs fueled for the action with a selection of wraps, sandwiches, and Angus-beef burgers.
After a game has aired, the staff dims the lights, cranks up the volume, and turns the stage over to a live DJ every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
The stylists at Bespoke Barber Shop may average 20 years of experience in grooming their diverse clientele, but their studio layout makes it look like they have second careers in interior design. The decor emanates both vintage and modern vibes, illustrated by the classic barber chairs with sleek armrests and the modern graffiti art positioned above framed black-and-white photos of a bygone era. Hanging within viewing distance of the waiting area’s leather sofa, flat-screen televisions play ESPN and live sports over the hum of trimmers and the swipes of straight razors. From scissor-cuts to mohawks, fade to tapers, stylists reinvent scalps of men, women, and children alike. In addition to touting its tress management skills, the shop uses old-school barber techniques of high-quality shaves and cuts, infusing it with new-school style. Bespoke has also garnered a following from high-profile heads, including the Yankees' own Mario Rivera.
The comfort of a café and the camaraderie of a sports bar are combined at Left of Centre Sports Cafe, where visitors can root for their favorite teams between bites of hearty American food and sips of coffee or beer. Bar bites such as citrus-glazed buffalo wings and miniature soft pretzels prep appetites for 11 specialty burgers, including a bacon cheeseburger, an Egg Lovers burger featuring a fried egg on top, and an Aloha burger with grilled pineapple and a teriyaki glaze. An outdoor patio offers a nice place to relax and catch a glimpse of soaring ostriches, and the kitchen also serves weekend brunches of hangar steak and eggs, french toast stuffed with caramelized fruit, mimosas, and bloody marys. Left of Centre hosts special events throughout the week, including karaoke, darts competitions, and ladies' nights.
