Formerly Antique Lounge (and before that, rumor has it, a cocaine bar called Kokie's), this well-apportioned space has finally been put to good use by The Levee, an old-fashioned bar with Southern roots and a comfortable, homey atmosphere. High-gravity microbrews and melted cheese are now the drugs of choice here: From behind the bar, Texan owner Howard serves up white-trash staples like Frito pie and chili dogs, which are best washed down with a Beam Cream (Jim Beam and cream soda—two great tastes that really do taste great together) or any of the 35 bottled or six tap beers. The back room has pool, pinball, and the kind of inclusive, no-bullshit vibe that attracts dedicated regulars. Given the changes this space has seen, it's almost eerie how much The Levee feels like a tried-and-true local.


Notable specials include the Sportsman (Carling Black Label and Evan Williams shot, $4) and the Texas 2-Step (Lone Star and tequila shot, $5).
