Kitty Hawk
(319) 351-9819
1012 Gilbert Ct

Kitty Hawk 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 Kitty Hawk

Gabe's
(319) 354-4788
330 E Washington St
Iowa City, IA
Description
Gabe's - Dress up. Gabe's isn't necessarily "formal," per se, but it's sexy and sleek; this is the kind of place where if you're dressed like a tool, you'll stick out like a sore thumb. (Probably more than a sore thumb, actually-those don't really stand out when you think about it). The point is: it's a solid place. Bring your A-game.

Description
Dublin Underground - Of the city's hundreds and hundreds of bars, Dublin Underground fits right in the middle of the bell curve - a place to hit with your buddies on the way to your ultimate destination.
