Located in the Midtown, Khon's is the perfect after-work hangout. They serve beer, wine, and coffee in a laid-back atmosphere. It's a great spot to go for a quiet night with a few friends. They have plenty of surprising drinks in stock from all over the world. Take a load off and play darts while shooting the breeze with the friendly bartenders, or sit and enjoy an eye-opening coffee while finishing up some work.
This sprawling midtown bar has plenty of room for all - and perhaps a hanging lamp for every patron. The ceiling is studded with Tiffany style stained glass lamps of every possible hue. It’s easy to become distracted from the conversation from looking at all the pretty lights. Rich, dark wooden and antique furniture abound and make for a very comfortable atmosphere in which to enjoy a beverage - including dollar-off drinks during daily happy hour from 4:30PM-9PM. The décor definitely transports to the Art Nouveau era, but the music may snap you back to the future. An unusual, but not jarring juxtaposition. -Gemma Amato
Looking for somewhere different to hang with your buds? Try The Maple Leaf Pub in Midtown. This place is overflowing with north-of-the-border character. Switch up your steady diet of domestic and Mexican beers to a frosty Canadian Molson and catch a hockey game with some friendly folks. If one of your friends gets too rowdy, you can put them in the penalty box. There is no better watering hole in the city during the Stanley Cup. The crowd, much like what can be found in Canada, is diverse and super pleasant.
Central Texas is a relaxing place. If you don't have the time to make a road trip, treat yourself to Canyon Creek Cafe. With such a laid back atmosphere and friendly folks, you're liable to go for lunch and stay through happy hour. Enjoy good ole American classics and Texas faves, like insanely good burgers and fat sandwiches. The choices seem endless and the taste is heavenly. Feel like something lighter? The salads rock and roll, like the Gonzo Garbonzo with plump chickpeas, avocado, crisp sprouts, and tangy feta. Choose from over 30 beers to wash it down while watching a ballgame and chatting with friends. They're open early for breakfast on the weekends too. -Adam Rosen
