Village Lounge
(860) 886-5743
Route 165
Preston, CT

Village Lounge, 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 Village Lounge

1 Mohegan Sun Blvd

Wilson's Saloon

Wilson's Saloon - Here's the problem with most bars: the vibe sometimes dies around 1am.

57 Broadway
Norwich, CT

Billy Wilson's Ageing Still - Think of Billy Wilson's Ageing Still as a guaranteed hangover. And we mean that in the best possible way.

12 S Main St

Harp & Hound
(860) 572-7778
4 Pearl St
Mystic, CT
Description
Harp & Hound, 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 Harp & Hound
