The best place to hear the latest flying-under-the-radar indie acts. However, the venue in this tavern is small — the main attraction is the bar and the crowds from Polk Street. Art shows and music acts can be seen nightly; be sure to check out their calendar for a list of events throughout the week. And DJs can usually be found spinning at least one night during the weekend.

Hours: Daily 4 p.m.-2 a.m.
