With its table and bottle service, live dance music, and 50-cent Corrona specials, El Parral is everything you'd want in a club. But that doesn't mean it's exclusive. Anybody can get down to boogie town on the dance floor, especially with the deep neon blue lights setting the scene. Should you want the presidential treatment, however, El Parral is more than happy to oblige. The club offers VIP treatment and bottle service, which is when your waiter is made entirely of bottles.
Though the flavors of the sea shine through on their menu, the chefs at Crab Zone decided to add a little more zing to their recipes. That's why the chefs give control over to the diners, letting them mix and match seasonings and spice levels on orders of boiled king crab and snow crab. Guests can create mild plate of Cajun-spiced shrimp or see whether crab with super-spicy garlic butter can make steam shoot out of their ears. Alongside these customized dishes, the kitchen serves up barbecued filets of sea bass, grilled salmon, and fresh raw oysters. The staff can also fry up batches of shrimp or calamari, a perfect pair for buckets of beer and pitchers of margaritas while watching sports on HDTVs throughout the restaurant.
Stinger's Sports Bar & Grill sates sports fanatics with a menu of standard pub provender, 16 beers on tap, and a plethora of flat-screen TVs. Cooks lovingly marry french fries with an octuplet of combos ($5–$8), including pork fritters ($7), brats ($7), and fish 'n' chips ($8), and buffalo wings ($0.50 each; 10-wing minimum), and personal pizzas ($5–$7) dance a bacchanalian jig with all-day, everyday Bomber specials. Like sleeping under a fluffy blanket of pancakes, plates keep warm beneath all-day servings of breakfast foods, including the bacon or sausage breakfast burrito ($6) and The Stinger ($6), a new york strip steak and eggs that carry out platter wars over territory with hash browns and toast. DJ sets on Friday and Saturday and karaoke Monday–Thursday fill the bar with amateur and professional tunes, and send feet shuffling round the dance floor.
Owned and run by Irish transplants, Tim Finnegan’s recreates an authentic pub atmosphere to enjoy traditional dishes as well as international soccer matches. The pub takes its name from James Joyce's final novel, Finnegans Wake, and reflects its Celtic heritage both behind the bar and on the menu. Taps hide cold drafts of Harp, Guinness, and Smithwick's, and the kitchen fills tables with plates of corned beef and cabbage or traditional Irish breakfast, served regardless of what time it is in Belfast.
The Bleacher Report called out Finnegan's as a top destination to catch Euro 2012 matches, and fans are regularly found clustered around the long bar or lacquered wooden tables to cheer on their teams. Musicians can test new material or their ability to follow instructions on Wednesday night open mics or Sunday karaoke, while teams can test their wits on Tuesday with pub trivia. Monday and Thursday though Saturday nights are reserved for live music.
