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 a pool table 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).
