Stoplite Lounge
(802) 773-1605
150 West St
Rutland, VT
Description
Stoplite Lounge, 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. Just keep your expectations grounded. And there's something to be said for beers that cost less than $14 bucks. Review of Stoplite Lounge.

Friar's Tavern

56 Strongs Ave
Rutland, VT
Description
Friar's Tavern - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Friar's 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.)

SJS Enterprises
(802) 775-6963
125 State St
Rutland, VT

Sjs Enterprises - Maybe you'll see Norm in the corner. Or Cliff sitting next to him. Maybe Sam behind the bar. Yep, Sjs Enterprises is that comfortable, cozy neighborhood bar - the kind where the bartender seems to know everyone who walks through the door.

(802) 775-3775
174 S Main St
Rutland, VT
Description
C J's Suds South, 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 C J's Suds South

Cass' Pub
(802) 786-5222
87 State St
Rutland, VT
Description
Cass' Pub - You might see a celeb here. But he/she will probably be on one of the many flat screen TVs lining the walls. Cass' Pub is the place you'd likely go to to watch that big game but you'll probably have so much fun, you'll stick around longer.

Two Shea's

4763 Killington Rd
Killington, VT
Description
Killington Village Inn - Want to throw a huge party with 300 of your closest friends? Killington Village Inn is probably not the place to do it. But if you're interested in grabbing a quick drink and possibly some bar food, Killington Village Inn is more than able to oblige.
