The Phoenix is what Yoshi's is to Oakland and The Blue Note is to NYC, most notably it is the city's number one jazz restaurant. Guests come down six nights a week to listen to a varied mix of jazz musicians from around town as well as those touring the U.S. The jazz hall also functions as a restaurant, so you can watch the show while you eat. They have a great happy hour from 3-6pm and on Saturdays their 'Bloody Mary Brunch' allows you to make your own Bloody Mary as you wish! Check website for complete calendar and show times.
Bier Station is a craft beer drinkers paradise, not only because it serves some of the finest craft beers in town, but it also has some insanely good food. The bar has 28 different rotating taps and a few are dedicated to 'session' beers (those with ABV lower than 5%). The menu features innovative twists on traditional classics like the bratwurst topped with Ponzu infused red cabbage and Wasabi mayo or the homemade pretzels served with jalapeno cheddar cheese. One other cool attribute to the bar is their website, they have a real-time tap menu to let drinkers know when their favorite beer is in or out!

The jukebox and amply stocked whiskey bar are two other reasons why people love this place, the latter provides a whiskey menu that has almost every scotch imaginable. From the Highlands and Islay to the Islands and Speyside, you are sure to find one you like.
