Set Current Location
The owners of Monarch took over another defunct club in 2013, yet this one is revitalized and better. The renovated space is hip, yet a bit cavern-like with its dark interior lighting and subdued walls, perfect for intimate conversation. For entertainment, Monarch has an eclectic entertainment line up, from 'Karate-oke Mondays' and DJ nights to live music and happy hour, this spot will set the right mood whether you come late at night or right after work.
From the outside, you can't make anything out. But once inside, Gray Dog is one of the most popular watering holes in town. The decor is an ode to the owners' gray schnauzer where you will find the dog on their colorful wallpaper and art pieces as a quirky subject. The bar is made of wire and painted stones. Dimly lit with Oriental light fixtures, it has an extensive list of drinks from the region and nationally. From signature cocktails to craft beers and other alcoholic beverages, you can just tipple on them during their happy hours.
This quasi-dive located just north of downtown El Paso is a homespun spot with one of the best patios in the city with views over the Franklin Mountains. The drinks fulfill the trinity of cheap, strong and large and the staff is always pretty relaxed. Check out their 'Tequila Tuesday' if you like this potent libation.
Mulligan's is a great spot in El Paso to come and watch a game, whether its NBA, MLB, NHL or NFL, you can rest assured they'll have it. In addition to its reputation as a sports bar, the owners also present live acts throughout the month. Most of the music is usually rock or speed metal, but don't let that deter you, Mulligan's is an overall place of entertainment. As with many dives in El Paso, the beer prices are amazing and the happy hours are even better.
