Friends & Neighbors

Friends & Neighbors is the type of place you start off your night. The drinks are cheap and strong but the crowd isn't the type to get the party started. Grab a quick drink here and then head out to the real party. -Review of Friends & Neighbors

Checkered Flag Sportsbar

N225 Stoney Brook Rd
Appleton, WI
Checkered Flag Sportsbar - Maybe you'll see Norm in the corner. Or Cliff sitting next to him. Maybe Sam behind the bar. Yep, Checkered Flag Sportsbar is that comfortable, cozy neighborhood bar - the kind where the bartender seems to know everyone who walks through the door.

1200 S Oneida St
Appleton, WI
Zugie's Pub - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Zugie's Pub is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)

Union Jack
(920) 731-7393
812 S Olde Oneida St
Appleton, WI
Union Jack, located at [Address], is your garden variety pub. It's not going to win any raves of "Hottest. Bar. Ever.," but it's a serviceable place to relax and unwind. Just keep your expectations grounded. And there's something to be said for beers that cost less than $14 bucks. Review of Union Jack.

Hank & Karen's Tavern
(920) 731-1265
1937 E John St

Hank & Karen's Tavern, located at [Address], has an atmosphere that's bordering on dive. Don't take a date there-unless she's cool as hell and is super low-maintenance-but it's a good place to chill and unwind. -Review of Hank & Karen's Tavern

Y Go By
