  • 3rd Street Bar
    • Neighborhood: Midtown
    • Open for: Weekends, Late Night
    • Outdoor Patio
    • Cards Accepted

    There are few things in this world we love more than a good dive bar, and Midtown’s 3rd Street Bar is the gold standard. Bartenders serve up cheap drinks with stiff pours. Every good dive bar has darts and a jukebox, but at 3rd Street you can also find the more elusive shuffleboard table. This bar has a relaxed vibe that makes you want to settle [...]

    With a bar that opens at 7 a.m. on weekdays and a kitchen serving until 2 a.m., it’s always a good time to visit Honest John’s. This cozy neighborhood spot is part deli and part dive bar, but all fun. The quality and value of an Honest John’s breakfast cannot be overstated.

  • Cass Cafe
    • Neighborhood: Midtown
    • Price Level:   
    • Vegetarian Options
    • Cards Accepted
    • Free Parking Available

    Cass Cafe’s offbeat vibe and comfortable Art Deco interior are the antithesis of a glossy chain restaurant, and that’s exactly why we love it. Part-restaurant, part-bar and part-art gallery, this spot has been a neighborhood institution for 20 years. Located in the heart of the Cass Corridor and Midtown’s Cultural Center, the cafe is a reg [...]

    Located in Midtown’s Majestic Theater complex, which also houses Garden Bowl and renowned music venues the Majestic Theater and the Magic Stick, the Majestic Cafe sometimes gets overshadowed by its more famous housemates. Don’t be fooled into thinking this is just a stopover on your way to a concert. The Majestic Cafe is worth its own visit. [...]

    Corktown Tavern was always a great spot to hear live music. When it came under new ownership last year, we were anxious to see what was going to happen to one of our favorite neighborhood dives. We’re happy to report a few welcome upgrades. Not much has changed in terms of the decor, except that it’s noticeably cleaner (even the bathrooms [...]

    From its unassuming exterior, one could easily mistake Cutter’s Bar & Grill for just another neighborhood dive. Do not be fooled. Hiding inside this Eastern Market hole-in-the-wall is a legendary lunch and dinner favorite that will change your life. Originally named for the meat cutters who opened the bar, burgers are the stars of [...]
