You can watch the game at RJ's Sports Bar and Lounge, sure, but that’d be selling the rest of the place short. Patrons stop here for Motown Mondays and live bands on Soulful Saturdays, and there’s a karaoke night and ladies' night in between. There are drink specials every day of the week, too. There’s even an enforced dress code on Fridays and Saturdays for the over-30 set here that keeps things classy and bans Dickensian street urchins with fake IDs.

Initially conceived as a one-off event in 2010, The Smoker's Club has since expanded, presenting fans with tours that unite skilled rappers and expert beat makers. One of the original members of the Wu-Tang Clan, Grammy-winning wordsmith Method Man spouts off dexterous rhymes in a gravely voice obtained by chugging asphalt smoothies every day for breakfast. Curren$y gently cradles ears with laid-back flow, and frequent Smoker's Club collaborators such as Big K.R.I.T., Smoke DZA and Fiend buoy the evening with additional verbal fireworks. Rattling bass shakes The Pageant’s designated dance floor as fans bob and weave through the crowds to try to snag an autographed poster, CD, or security guard.
Club Viva lets seasoned rug-cutters and beginning boogiers alike feel the beat in salsa-themed dance nights on Thursdays and Saturdays. A great way to woo a love interest or wear down a sugar-buzzed manchild, today’s deal includes the club cover charge and ensures a table at which tired feet can rest between dances. Salsa skills that aren't up to snuff can be polished in the one-hour lesson offered from 8 p.m.–9 p.m., and dance-floor mouth-droughts can be relieved with four drink tickets redeemable for libations such as Latin Kiss cocktails and specialty Bacardi mojitos. With mambo, African, reggae, Arabic, and European music, the high-octane dance nights give lovers of dance the opportunity to shake it like a hated roommate's bottle of soda.
Llywelyn's menu introduces an impressive assortment of traditional pub classics to salads, flatbreads, wraps, and ambitiously portioned sandwiches. Start with an order of Welsh potato chips ($3.95); flaky, fried Irish pies ($7.95); beer-battered fried pub pickles ($7.25); or the much-talked-about chicken chili ($4.95 for a bowl). Then wrap mouth muscles around fish and chips ($10.25): two beer-battered and fried cod fillets served with house-made tartar sauce. From meaty chunks of lamb, potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, and green beans swimming in Guinness-Jameson stock ($9.95) to shepherd's pie ($10.95), the selections side well with a sudsy sip. The beer menu includes an exhaustive library of selections by the draft or bottle. Llywelyn's also offers a menu of kid-friendly fare.
Globe lights hang from Delmar Lounge's red awning, beckoning nighthawks in to enjoy homestyle Cajun fare and live music late into the night. The kitchen churns out house-smoked barbecue ribs, southern-style shrimp and grits, and po boy sandwiches until 2 a.m. every night of the week, fortifying bodies and fueling feet in preparation for live DJ dance parties, jazz sets, and hourly potato sack races that sustain the convivial atmosphere until 3 a.m.
The classic American sports-bar vibe effused by Market Pub House’s memorabilia-covered walls and overhead TVs belies the eatery’s diverse spread of multinational pub fare. Like a cozy bathrobe woven from dark matter, the menu combines the comfortable and familiar with the exotic, dishing out traditional deli staples and hot wings along with tangy greek salads, crusty banh mis, and Latin- and Asian-infused appetizers. Eighteen frosty beers on tap lubricate game-day viewing across multiple flat-screen TVs as well as weekly karaoke and trivia, and an ample outdoor patio hosts guests at more than a dozen wrought-iron tables.
