Here’s the scene at The Bar on a Friday night: A few people with drinks in plastic cups drink and chat on the sidewalk. A bouncer checks IDs at the front door, but not the South Beach kind looking you up and down- just a friendly face making sure there aren’t any kids around getting into trouble. Inside, the music is loud, the jukebox is playing everyone’s favorite sing-a-long songs and the bar is packed. The bar at The Bar on a Friday night is always packed – especially between 5pm-7:30pm when Ladies Drink Free is going on. The back patio is full of groups of friends chatting away, the occasional run-in with someone you haven’t seen in years… something that happens quite frequently at this Cheers-like spot.

The Bar is packed every Friday night, but it’s a local’s favorite spot all week long. Tuesday night is karaoke night, Thursday and Friday there’s a DJ spinning and Saturday is live music. Monday night is 2-4-1 and Whiskey Wednesdays is a weekly gathering.

One of the Gables’ oldest spots, The Bar hits all the right notes. It’s a social spot, with good drinks and a solid menu of bar food staples. There’s entertainment, familiar faces and drink specials for that extra incentive to stick around for just one more…
