McFadden's Restaurant & Saloon, which now has locations from coast to coast, first opened its doors just a few blocks from Times Square in New York City in 1977. The founder, Steve McFadden, drew upon his Irish heritage when creating the menu and even incorporated his family's own shepherd’s pie recipe. Diners will also find international pub grub such as burgers, sandwiches, and hand-cut top sirloin to accompany the bar’s full selection of beers and cocktails. The atmosphere gets lively after dark here, as groups cheer on their favorite sports teams, shimmy to DJ-spun music, and perform round-off back-handsprings.

You’d be forgiven for assuming that Shady’s was anything but a dive bar tucked away on Indian School Road. Even the exterior – all dark windows on a nondescript building façade – seems to indicate that Shady’s is exactly as their name suggests, but inside the ample bar space is a thriving hub of local activity. As a fun, cherished neighborhood hangout, this simple bar space is enlivened by a jukebox instead of blaring TVs, letting guests grab a swanky banquette near the pool tables for conversations that can actually be heard. Others get comfortable on the bar stools and order up an expertly crafted Moscow Mule, Old Fashioned, Corpse Reviver or lemon drop martini. Craft beers are another good option – there’s reason that the sign out front says “Fine Ales & Cocktails.”
Beyond FilmBar’s colorful marquee lie two separate, yet complementary spaces. At the beer and wine bar, bartenders fill glasses with a dozen wines and more than 25 craft beers, including brews from Four Peaks and Deschutes. A candy stand and murals depicting Chevy Chase and Queen Latifah hint at what else is here: a 70-seat “microcinema” where audiences take in foreign, independent, cult classic, and local films. The theater is completely soundproofed, so moviegoers won’t have to tune out the buzz of lingering barflies, and bar patrons won't have their evening ruined by the sound of Arnold Schwarzenegger's sobering singing voice.
Charlie's has a large section of craft cocktails and craft beers, making it a local favorite. Low-fat foods are not on the menu at Charlie's, though, so plan to indulge a bit. During the summer months, don't miss out on Charlie's' outdoor patio seating. Energize your evening with some dancing — the bar often hosts a DJ. Loud is an understatement when it comes to the decibel levels at this bar, so it's best to save conversation for another location.
Weekend diners may find themselves waiting for a table, as Friday and Saturday nights tend to draw a crowd.
