The acoustics in Uncle Bo's Live are as smooth as the ambiance. The blues venue hosts singers and performers amid the backdrop of a recycled cobblestone floor, plus woodwork and stained glass that once was in the old governor's mansion. While listening to Grammy and International Blues Society award winners croon, audience members can relax with drinks from the full bar or a menu of barbecue dishes.

For those who can't pry themselves out of their seats until late into the evening, the attached Ramada Downtown boasts guest rooms with a free breakfast buffet.

Inspired by the underground jazz and improv piano clubs of the 1940s and 50s, The Barrel House swings its showgoers' spirits skyward with an array of piano-pounding talent. Each keyboard combatant can duel through a repertoire of hits that numbers in the hundreds, from The Beatles to Beyonce. Its VIP rooms offer premium views of the heated harmonics and vary in size, amenities, and vocal scatting propensities. The Blue Moon Lounge and Crown Royal house up to 50 tune-loving patrons, feature private bars and bartenders and three 46" TVs a piece (a $300 value each); the Jägermiester Lounge (a $250 value) and Boulevard (a $200 value) can host up to 20 patrons, sporting speak-easy styling, private servers, and a proximity to the stage that ensures requests won't go unheard. Like a vaudevillian tobogganing down sand dunes in a suit, The Barrel House calls to mind the carefree, classy clubs of yesteryear: it's 5,000 foot playing space features rich crimson and tan walls, replete with old wood barrels and stools, making it ideal for relaxing with friends or watching said friends jitterbug joyously.

Sandwich after sandwich after sandwich is all you'll see when you flip to the back of the menu at Quinton's Bar & Deli. Here, sandwich makers assemble four styles of reuben alone?corned beef, pastrami, turkey, or a meaty medley of all three. These don't even skim the surface of Quinton's 20-plus other specialties, which range from the most popular turkey-avocado-cream-cheese creation to the chicken philly's combo of marinated fowl and cheesesteak fixings.

Besides sandwiches, cooks fill hearty bread bowls with creamy potato bacon or broccoli cheddar soup and smother nachos with cheddar cheese, jalape?os, and housemade chili con queso. Meals unfold inside Quinton's spacious, TV-filled bar, where bartenders pair feasts with such libations as jumbo margaritas and domestic brews.

The fragrance of sizzling burgers and roasting pizzas floods Kanz's City Pizza and Burgerz's wood-paneled dining room. Chefs hand-toss signature pizzas with 13 different toppings such as pepperoni, sausage, and pineapple and pair 8-ounce burgers with freshly cut fries and hand-breaded onion rings.

Lounging feels perfectly natural at Arabian Clouds. The hookah bar remains open until as late as 3 a.m. throughout the week, encouraging passersby to stop in, gather around the glowing coals of one of the Khalil Mamoon hookahs, and enjoy a round of Arabian coffee or tea with the shisha. The lounge also plays eclectic mixes of pop, hip-hop, rock, and contemporary Arabian music, and guest DJs stop in to perform and energize crowds on the weekends.
