Named one of Lexington's 10 Best nightlife destinations, Austin City Saloon's honky tonk swagger is bred deep in its bones. Drop in for live music three nights a week, when country crooners including James Otto, Craig Morgan, and Montgomery-Gentry have all graced the stage with sincerity and heartbreak. Sip libations beginning at 7 p.m., tipping back bottles of Ale 8 One ($1.50) or 16-ounce house margaritas ($7), or belly up to a tap table and draft your own glasses of Bud Light ($0.15/ounce) and Natural Light ($0.10/ounce). After flexing your dorsal muscles over a round of Jäger bombs ($6 each), pair fleeting fermented goodness with gooey arrays of chili cheese nachos ($2), pizzas ($5), and mozzarella sticks ($4). Those looking to sweeten up after a tumultuous twirl on the dance floor can nab a moon pie ($1).
