  • Challenger Restaurant Group
    The Big Three unites three bars under its umbrella, but that’s about the only thing the venues have in common. Each offers a completely different nightlife atmosphere, ranging from a rustic honky-tonk bar to a swanky lounge. China Blue The dance floor throbs to the DJ’s pulsing beats under a pattern of colorful lights. Professional dancers gyrate on elevated platforms over the dance floor, and three different lounges provide a more laid-back atmosphere with elements such as exposed brick walls, leather sofas, and luminous aquariums behind the bars. Main Street Bistro Red billiards tables and neon beer logos fill one room of the tavern-style bar, but Main Street Bistro erupts with competition on Monday and Tuesday nights. Beer-pong tournaments pack teams into the bar, and the sound of cheers temporarily drowns out the commentary on the sports games playing on the wall-mounted TVs. Dirty Little Roddy's With its wooden plank walls and tabletops supported by sawhorses, Dirty Little Roddy's evokes a back-roads bar in all ways but one: the bar hosts bikini and boxer bull riding for cash prizes. The event provides risqué entertainment without asking firefighters to approximate a pole dance.

  • Opa Nightclub & Lounge
    Wood accents backdrop the bar and highlight the interior design at Opa Lounge, where signature cocktails meet Mediterranean comestibles in a long, crimson corridor. Hanging lamps, assembled from ruby-red gems that tint the bulbs' light, illuminate turkish-coffee martinis and the signature Opatinis, just two letters away from being the thing Oprah declines to put on her magazine cover next month. The low-lit Opa is part of Cazba, its sister restaurant. Cazba's cloud murals, cream-colored arches, and serving staff cultivate a tranquil complement to the lounge's spirits and bold, abstract design. The two share a menu. Kaleidoscopic mosaics of the round gems found on Opa's lamps also line the border of the decorated ceiling fixtures and usher in a rainbow of light behind the bar, which spans the long, narrow space. Even the ceiling is decked out in painted designs and structural accents. When they look up, guests peer past a light-blue mural and into a vertical, scarlet-hued chamber topped with a skylight, which is what Americans first called Sputnik.

  • Sockeye Grill and Brewery
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Sockeye Grill & Brewery facet_type_id: 8b954c70-5f2c-1032-bdaf-34c4a2f54492 html_text: |- Six World Beer Cup medals and eight Great American Beer Festival medals. Impressive numbers, both, but they represent only a fraction of the 100+ awards won by Sockeye Grill & Brewery's six brewers. Led by Josh King, this self-described "brew crew" showcases their talents with six mainstay pours, headlined by the hopped-up Dagger Falls IPA. Beyond these, Sockeye's crew handcrafts seasonal drafts such as their Belgian-Style Summer Ale and Socktoberfest Lager. There are even a few rotating experiments only available at the Sockeye pub, such as a stout infused with espresso beans. Chef Brad Severeid and his culinary team whip up hearty pub food to complement the ever-changing list of libations. But they aren't above sneaking some beer into their food; for examples, look no further than the bratwursts simmered in pale ale and the boneless wings coated in porter-spiked barbecue sauce.
