Winston Churchill was famous for the high standards he applied to alcohol, quipping that "Liquor is quicker, but get me a single malt scotch with moon rocks in it! I'm the English president!" Be like Ol' Winnie with today's Groupon:for $6, you get $12 worth of bar beverages at Eastside Tavern.
Eastside Tavern is a quaint, alternative bar that specializes in providing a great selection of jukebox rock ‘n' roll, playing cult horror flicks on the TV, and serving up awesome daily specials with regular live music. The 22 beers and other imbibing delicacies found at Eastside Tavern substantially saturate the arid stomach sponges of thirsty patrons. Enlightened brew brethren can tinker with tap beers ($3+) or guzzle glass-encased treats with the likes of micro bottles ($3–$3.50) and domestic and imported bottles ($3.50+). Feel free to bring in outside food from other establishments, which is best deluged and dismembered by house wines ($4) and kid-unfriendly English and Irish ciders ($4+). A pinball machine, two real sisal fibre dartboards, and free WiFi make it easy to impress future friends and past enemies with your advanced ball-pinning abilities, elf-like dexterity, and sacred rituals for opening emails from the boss.
There's always something happening this eclectic bar, from standup to trivia to karaoke. Theme nights run Monday–Saturday and draw a diverse and friendly crowd that sips microbrews while playing board games, swigs PBR while dancing the night away, or quaffs other adult libations out of the bar's rentable drinking horns. Two dartboards, a pinball machine, and a jukebox add a vintage element to the spot, and free WiFi keeps patrons connected to the present. Eastside Tavern does not serve food, but folks are encouraged to take advantage of the BYO eats policy.
