Paramount bar in downtown Birmingham serves pub food and craft cocktails and beer—including some made by local and state breweries—in a retro-arcade atmosphere. Although Paramount is not quite a sports bar, locals come for the sporty atmosphere, the solid drinks and food menu highlighted by a generous selection of hot dogs and burgers, and the games. Under the dim lights there are two basketball shooting cages, a foosball table, pool tables, skee ball, and several retro arcade games.

Competitively priced, the relaxing lounge is the perfect refuge for those looking for a break from the usual.
Located on Cobb Lane near Five Points South, the Blue Monkey Lounge offers a large array of drinks and cigars in a very cozy atmosphere.

Right in the center of Avondale lies this comfortable and popular neighborhood bar. The Parkside Cafe is especially well-known for its pleasant outdoor patio, a great place to enjoy one of their tasty craft brews or stiff cocktail. Inside, the walls are packed with interesting and eclectic art, maybe with a live band or DJ playing in the background. Trivia nights are also particularly popular nights at the Parkside for those know-it-all's who like to put their useless knowledge to work!
