  • Phils Tavern
    As mixed drinks and frosty brews get to know each other on Phil's Bar & Grill's weathered wooden bar, the steam of fresh-to-order pub fare scuttles up its vaulted ceiling. The cozy dive seats roughly 75 people, with additional standing room suited for chest bumping after a big play shines down from wall-mounted TVs. Patrons can two-hand hearty sandwiches or sate omelet and gravy longings with a menu of all-day breakfast options. And with live weekend entertainment and daily all-you-can-eat specials, Phil's encourages lingering among all visitors, not just the regular who rents out the janitor's closet as a studio apartment.

  • Ragin Cajun Piano Bar
    To the sounds of rollicking live piano music, Ragin Cajun Piano Bar celebrates the cuisine and culture of Louisiana with a tempting menu of crayfish, bourbon-glazed steaks, juicy burgers, and spicy andouille. Bowls of crayfish étouffée in a creamy roux and chicken wings slathered in a piquant voodoo sauce evoke images of the sunny South, and an open-air balcony and a second-story patio frame stunning views of a river town that shares the Mississippi with New Orleans. On weekends, live piano players bang out popular rock and pop tunes as patrons sing and dance along, contrasting with somber weekday lectures on the differences between English common law and Napoleonic code.
