Talk about old-school: The Fat Lady's building dates back to the 1880s, and the bar has been in the same family since it was bought, refurbished, and reopened in 1970. It's now outfitted with well-chosen knickknacks — Tiffany lamps, stained glass, a sign rescued from the Fox Theater during its revitalization — and as far as the clientele goes, it's filled with whatever the human equivalent of well-chosen knickknacks is. Try the Naked Maja (Skyy cherry vodka, black cherry juice, and Sprite) — it's named for the famous Goya painting.

Hours: Mon.-Fri. 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m., Sat. 9 a.m.-11 p.m., Sun. 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
