P J's
(402) 463-9066
117 N Lincoln Ave
Hastings, NE
Description
P J's - Here's the problem with most bars: the vibe sometimes dies around 1am. Luckily for you, when most bars are sweeping up the floors and closing shop, P J's kicks it into another gear. The place usually keeps it going 'til way late-guaranteeing a late and out-of-control night.

Olive Saloon
(402) 463-9181
423 W 3rd St
Hastings, NE
Description
Olive Saloon - Happy hour never looked so good. Olive Saloon, located at [Address] caters to an anxious after-work crowd but once the drinks start coming, the ties start getting loose.

Brass Ring
(402) 463-8388
2205 Osborne Dr E
Hastings, NE
Description
Brass Ring - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Brass Ring 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.)

Pit Stop
(402) 463-9028
623 W 1st St
Hastings, NE
Description
Pit Stop - Some bars are legendary. The kind of watering hole that you'll remember for most of your life. Pit Stop? It's not one of them. Located at [Address], it's pretty much your vanilla bar. Which isn't a bad thing.

Fuzzy's Place
(402) 762-3100
105 N Alexander Ave
Clay Center, NE
Description
Fuzzy's Place - You might see a celeb here. But he/she will probably be on one of the many flat screen TVs lining the walls. Fuzzy's Place is the place you'd likely go to to watch that big game but you'll probably have so much fun, you'll stick around longer.

Second Street Slammer
(402) 463-9220
2315 W 2nd St
Hastings, NE
Description
Second Street Slammer - It has it all: a swank atmosphere, attractive crowd, and cheap drinks. Okay, okay, so maybe it doesn't have cheap drinks, but Second Street Slammer is still a solid lounge. Not really a dance club, per se, but perfect more a more upscale option.

Reno Bar
(402) 463-9133
414 W 2nd St
Hastings, NE
Description
Reno Bar - Of the city's hundreds and hundreds of bars, Reno Bar fits right in the middle of the bell curve - a place to hit with your buddies on the way to your ultimate destination. Not the ideal spot for fabulous, drunken debauchery, but it's a good as place as any to pre-drink.

Illusions
(402) 462-2695
1400 W 18th St
Hastings, NE
Description
Illusions, located at [Address], has a smooth and chill vibe. It's not the kind of place where you'll be dancing on tables, but it's no dive bar, either. A good mix of laid-back décor and casual comfort. -Review of Illusions

Little Jake's Dancin' Country
(402) 463-9004
1104 W J St
Hastings, NE
Description
Little Jake's Dancin' Country, 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 Little Jake's Dancin' Country

Blue Hill Tavern
(402) 756-2600
521 W Gage St
Blue Hill, NE
Description
Blue Hill Tavern - There's not much to be said about the cocktails at [name]. They're not necessarily cheap, but they're as tasty as they are potent...a delicious and dangerous combination.

Essential Bartending Equipment

By Russ Cobbe

Setting up your own home bar can be great fun when you have people over. It isn't overly expensive to get all the essentials. So what are the tools of the trade you'll need to show off to your guests?

Blender - If you don't already have one, get a good one that has good speed and power. Nothing is more annoying than waiting 5 minutes to crush up some ice or blend a drink.

Ice Bucket and Tongs - This is mainly used for easy access, don't get one too big that all the ice melts before you use it but don't get something so small that you have to keep refilling it either.

Combo Corkscrew/Bottle Opener - Obviously needed to open that fine wine or bottles of beer that don't have twist tops.

Paring Knife/Cutting Board - Used to cut up lemons and limes for garnishing along with other fruits in certain drinks.

Shaker - Used for mixing various drinks.

Bar Strainer - Used in a lot of cocktail recipes to stain out ice that might have been used to cool ingredients in a recipe. It looks like a little paddle with lots of round rings on the end.

Lemon/Lime Squeezer - This has a flat collector base with a raised pointed section in the middle with ridges. Its used to squeeze out fresh lemon or lime juice.
