Saloons were originally conceived as a venue to hold duels between rival sheriffs, as well as pianos that quarreled constantly over which should provide the dramatic background music. Enjoy a genuine saloon with today's Groupon to Park Street Saloon, which is surprisingly located on North Park Street and is open Wednesday through Saturday. Choose between the following deal options:
- For $10, you get $25 worth of classic pub fare and pours.
- For $25, you get a Friday-night party package for you and up to nine people (a $139 value), which can only be redeemed on Fridays before 11:30 p.m.
Park Street Saloon creates memorable nights out thanks to a supporting cast of casual American eats, dueling pianos, and a saloon atmosphere. The menu abounds with chops, sandwiches, and pastas that satisfy stomachs as ears get hand-fed honey-drizzled trills and glissandi. Order up a pitcher or bucket ($10–$28) of domestic or imported beers, including Bud Light and Heineken, or sip on specialty cocktails such as the 6 Shooter, a blend of Crown Royal, Captain Morgan, triple sec, amaretto, pineapple, and cranberry juice ($8 for 16 oz.). The fiesta salad is packed with the party-hard elements of corn, black beans, chipotle dressing, tortilla chips, and shredded cheese for a light meal ($6.99), and a half rack of saloon ribs served with fries and coleslaw ($14.99) fills up diners faster than an oxygen tank hooked up to a rapidly inflating cartoon cat. If you select a party package, you and up to nine friends get free cover ($5 per person), a reserved table ($50), and a party platter ($39) as you celebrate a birthday, bachelorette party, or new baby unearthed from the community cabbage patch.
Piano shows are typically performed Thursday through Saturday nights and feature an array of musical talent. You can also take in frequent comedic acts, one-man bands, and live DJs. Taking its cue from an old-timey Chicago saloon, the 8,000-square-foot open space is decorated with dark woods, deep reds, swinging doors, and the surprisingly chatty ghost of Al Capone.
