Taphouse: The feature at this local watering hole is The Tower! Pick any beer on tap and get it in a tall tubelike structure to share! Free pool and a live dj will keep you busy and engaged all night long.

 

Tapa Bar: Just as it sounds, Tapa Bar is your go-to spot for tapas and great liquor. This is a smaller venue, so don’t be surprised if there is a lineup out the door! It is definitely a must-see here in Vic.
