Select Local Merchants

  • Nugents Tavern
    In June 1923, Joseph Nugent, Sr. purchased the Highway Restaurant on 844 Newark Ave. At that time, the building was a converted two-story family house, with living quarters on the second floor and a restaurant on the first. It was a fitting history for a place that quickly became a home away from home for many customers, especially for factory workers at the Durant Motor Company. Miraculously, it remained that way, even through prohibition, and remained a favorite watering hole for workers who joined the war effort and flocked to the town's factories in the 1940s. With that storied history as its foundation, the modern-day Nugent's marches forward, retaining much of its old-school charm—and gaining one massive whiskey collection. In fact, customers can choose from all different kinds of Irish, American, and Canadian whiskeys, plus a few mixed whiskeys, too. Meanwhile, the food menu is packed with hearty meals that would do the factory workers of yesteryear proud, including 10-ounce all-beef burgers, Irish bangers with mashed potatoes, and Irish pancakes served with Guinness beef stew.

  • Las Palmas
    Let your mouth have a fiesta of its own at Las Palmas, a casual Mexican restaurant. You can also catch the latest scores on the TVs in the bar. Parents appreciate this bar's kid-friendly attitude, and little ones are often seen dining out with the adults. Enjoy the cool summer breezes on Las Palmas' seasonally available outdoor seating. A dance floor is on hand for folks ready to boogie the night away. Be prepared to raise your voice, though — the bar can get noisy. If crowds aren't your thing, it's best to visit Las Palmas during the slower weekday hours. If dining out is not on the agenda, this bar offers delivery and pickup, too. If parking is a concern, you'll be happy to hear that there are many convenient options in the area. Las Palmas may cost you a little bit more than some spots, but this deliciousness is fairly-priced (and well worth the few extra bucks). Come enjoy a casual night out with your friends and some Mexican cuisine at Las Palmas. So treat yourself to something new for lunch or dinner and taste the trends of Mexico at Las Palmas.

Dance the night away while Dolce's DJ spins the latest tunes. The music and crowds can create quite a racket at Dolce — noise levels can reach the upper registers. Planning a special night? Call ahead to reserve a table. Keep it casual at Dolce, and save that little black dress for a different occasion. A catering menu is also available if you're looking to dazzle the patrons at your next shindig. The bar is next to a parking lot, but drivers can also settle for street parking. Prices are a bit on the higher side, so this might be a good pick for a special night out.

If sitting still is not your style, feel free to take the dance floor and hop to the beat of the restaurant's live DJ. The noise at the restaurant can be positively thunderous, so save intimate conversations for another night. Prepare to face the crowds if you visit on the weekend — Friday and Saturday are Ole Restaurant's busiest days. Pull into one of the many parking spaces nearby if you choose to drive to the restaurant. Prices are reasonable, with a typical meal running under $30.
