Restaurants that support local music create a cultured environment for enjoying cuisine and inspire audiences to request that their servers hum the daily specials. Chow down beside your community's crooners with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of pub fare at Puck in Doylestown.
Puck hosts blossoming local artists onstage in a bustling jazz club atmosphere, augmented by a full menu of casual pub fare served on the fresh-air patio. Gum gallop through the salmon's horseradish-crusted terrain accented with flowing streams of raspberry sauce ($10.95, dinner service only) to bring out savory flavors and prompt splash fights, or scatter caramelized onions and mushrooms across the grilled steak doused in sun-dried tomato and gorgonzola sauce ($12.95, dinner service only). An 8-ounce burger burrows in a pillowy bun ($8.95) with savory snuggle buddies such as bacon and chili ($1 each), and behemoth chicken fingers stir up dangerous rip tides in seas of barbecue sauce ($6.95).
Patrons hunker down in the 120-seat brick venue for Wednesday open-mic nights or, with the purchase of a ticket (not included in Groupon), bask in local musicians’ lyrical artistry Thursday–Sunday. Clusters of ebony tables fleck Puck's new patio, anchored around a sculpture fountain of a mermaid and her dolphin synchronized-swimming teammates. Meanwhile, indoor diners navigate a chrome-topped bar and club-like dining area awash in the violet glow of black lights.
