The Egyptian Cafe
130 Northwestern Ave
West Laf, IN

Sportsman Bar - The alcohol and cigarettes are cheap, and there's a big jar filled with condoms. That's a strong hint that it's a gay pickup bar.
Other Pub, The
3000 S 9th St
Other Pub, The - A casual bar serving up casual bar food to a set of locals.

135 South Chauncey Ave
West Lafayette, IN

Kokoro - This downtown Lafayette sushi bar offers the most upscale Asian cuisine around. The largely Asian clientele helps keep standards for food and alcohol high.
1242 N 14th St
Linnwood Tavern - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Linnwood Tavern 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.)
Lafayette Brewing Co.
622 Main St
Lafayette Brewing Co. - The only microbrewery in town: the brews are ales and stouts, accompanied by a menu of appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, soups and salads, and steak. The place is housed in a nice, historic three-story brick building.
