What You'll Get
Unlike Similac Baby Formula, which is unfairly reserved for babies and experimenting teens, bar libations can be consumed by adults. Separate the towerers from the toddlers with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare and drinks at Poplar Street Pub.
The downtown gastropub boasts an extensive menu of reimagined pub fare. Start with a Scotch egg ($4), hard-boiled then wrapped in a garlic sausage before being doused with breading and fried. Or opt for an order of the pub poppers ($3), almond-stuffed medjool dates swaddled in strips of delicious bacon. Unstoppable appetites pause at the prosciutto burger ($12), and herbivorous eaters nosh the black-bean chipotle veggie burger ($11) with a side of fresh-cut-daily fries coated with garlic (add $2). Large plates, such as the slow-simmered chili verde with braised pork and green chilies ($8) or the Alaskan halibut and chips ($16) make gastro-pub elitists grovel. Hand-tossed pizzas (starting at $10) and fresh salads (starting at $5) complete the eclectic menu.
With eight TVs, an outdoor patio, and a stage for live music, Poplar Street Pub is an ideal spot to drink the summer breeze and more than 25 different types of barley pops ($2–$4.25 per pint). Salt Lake City Weekly commends the bar's laid-back crowd and friendly atmosphere. So round up your closest friends or roller-skating trumpet choir for a brassy blast of gastropub eats and rollicking drinks at Poplar Street Pub.
- If you are looking for a casual place to play billiards, casually meet up with friends, or just hang out for several hours, Poplar Street Pub could be the place for you. Poplar Street is a fine example of a gastropub. A place where you can just drop in for a few drinks, but also serves high-quality food. As opposed to a restaurant setting, where they like to get you fed and out the door, a gastropub is more of a casual setting where it's expected you will hang out. – Nick Johnson, Examiner
- Poplar's kitchen stays open late and its menu features gourmet, mostly organic and local fare. Expect a laidback sandals and jeans crowd out for a good time, all the time. The pub is surprisingly spacious, much more so than its exterior might suggest, with a stage for live music and a large patio that's especially inviting on warm summer nights. – Salt Lake City Weekly
- poplar is by far the best bar food in town. the chicken sandwich is one of my favorites. – Erick Galan, Urbanspoon
