From an exterior modeled after a traditional London free house to interior furnishings imported from Europe, Park Lane Tavern mimics the feel of a European tavern inside and out. Like a hot dog curtseying to the queen, the menu blends American staples with traditions from across the pond, juxtaposing steaks and club sandwiches with shepherd's pie and jagerschnitzel. Behind a gleaming handcrafted bar, bartenders pour from a monstrous selection of libations, including more than 70 draft, bottled, and cask-conditioned beers from around the globe; numerous wines, single-malt scotches, and small-batch bourbons; and creative cocktails, each of which can be found in what the tavern has dubbed their "Beverage Bible."
A pair of stock cars sits beneath the checkered-flag designs of NASCAR Sports Grille's exterior, which contains a chorus of cheering fans basking in the glow of three 16-foot televisions that beam live races and sports. Tables and a long, wooden bar sit beneath the towering displays, and cozy booths—each with a built-in TV—form an intimate setting where fans can attempt to feed nachos to the images of their favorite athletes. Outside, NFL banners hang from the ceiling of a covered patio, where groups share appetizers of homemade crab dip. Each of these eating arenas sets a competitive stage for grill fare all-stars, including six juicy burgers coated in eclectic toppings such as bourbon chili.
Saddle Ridge is a rock 'n' country nightclub with an attached sit-down restaurant, the Cheyenne Supper Club. The two venues' shared menu includes American classics, such as starters of barbecue chicken wings ($8.95) and potato skins loaded with cheese and bacon ($6.95). Tend to massive hunger rumbles with hearty hunks of main-course meat, such as the savory 8 oz. filet mignon, grilled to order with demi-glaze, mashed potatoes, and green beans ($18.95). For a handheld version, try the thin-sliced meat of the beef dip, with provolone cheese and jus dip ($7.95). Lighter eaters can opt for a flavorfully buoyant mixed-green house salad with cherry tomatoes, shredded cheese, cucumbers, bacon bits, and croutons ($5.95).
Brickhouse Tavern draws inspiration from New York pizzerias and roadside diners in equal measure, compiling a menu of familiar American comfort foods. The eatery demonstrates its commitment to the region by sourcing as much produce from local farmers as possible, supporting growers who embrace organic and eco-friendly practices in particular. These ingredients lend vibrant flavors to the tavern's signature pizzas, which are created using generations-old family recipes as well as a bit of New York flair. With more than 20 toppings available, guests can design personalized pies with anything from meatballs and fresh garlic to salami and jalapeños. Classic pasta dishes also allow the tavern's Italian origins to shine through an otherwise all-American smorgasbord of burgers, wings, and french fries that don't understand the metric system.
A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads.
While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.
