Midway Tavern 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 Midway Tavern

Three Thirty One Inn
(574) 255-2790
1123 Union St
Mishawaka, IN
Three Thirty One Inn - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Three Thirty One Inn 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.)

Rainbow Inn
(574) 255-3898
621 W Jefferson Blvd
Mishawaka, IN
Rainbow Inn, located at [Address], is your garden variety pub. It's not going to win any raves of "Hottest. Bar. Ever.," but it's a serviceable place to relax and unwind.

120 W Mishawaka Ave
Mishawaka, IN
Trips Tavern On The Avenue - Want to throw a huge party with 300 of your closest friends? Trips Tavern On The Avenue is probably not the place to do it. But if you're interested in grabbing a quick drink and possibly some bar food, Trips Tavern On The Avenue is more than able to oblige.

Pirate's Cove

Next up would be bitters. Bitters are made from a variety of roots, barks, berries and herbs. They generally add a bit of zing to your drinks. You should have Angostura, Peychaud's, Orange and Abbotts Aged bitters.

For mixing you'll need a good variety to make a lot of different recipes. The standards include multiple bottles of Mineral water, cola, ginger ale, club soda, tonic water, lemon/lime sodas and fresh juices (orange, pineapple, lemon, lime and tomato).

Finally you will need some things to garnish the drinks to add that special touch. The essentials include cocktail onions, stuffed olives, lemons, limes, oranges, strawberries, celery stalks, Tabasco sauce, maraschino cherries, pineapple...
