Horseshoe Bar Photo
With its large multi-paned tudor window and arched castle-like entry door, Horseshoe Bar (also known as 7B after the corner it's on and Vazac's after the 1930s catering hall that it replaced a few decades ago) looks like the type of place Model T Fords would be parked outside of. The rough-hewn, dark-wood interior fixtures include a U-shaped bar enclosing a towering wall of booze that has appeared in movies like The Godfather II and Crocodile Dundee. The bar itself is the size of a moat, long enough for 31 taps of beer (the bottle selection is also extensive, spanning PBR to Leffe, a great Belgian blonde). Several of the daytime patrons are as old and weathered as the graffitoed woodwork, and certainly didn’t come of age to the tunes on the punk-heavy jukebox. During the weekends the fake-ID set fills the rickety booths and packs the aisles solid, but when the kids aren’t banging on the Spiderman pinball machine or documenting their makeout sessions in the old-time photo booth, 7B is the place to kick back, watch the game, and relax—if power chords are relaxing.
