(319) 354-4788
330 E Washington St
Iowa City, IA
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.

Dublin Underground
(319) 337-7660
5 S Dubuque St
Iowa City, IA
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.

826 S Clinton St
Iowa City, IA
R T Grunts - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. R T Grunts 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.)

Brothers Bar & Grill
(319) 338-6373
125 S Dubuque St
Iowa City, IA
Brothers Bar & Grill - Happy hour never looked so good. Brothers Bar & Grill, located at [Address] caters to an anxious after-work crowd but once the drinks start coming, the ties start getting loose.
