1080 Riverdale St
West Springfield, MA
Description
Hoops Sport Bar & Grille - It's a toss-up: hit up TGIFridays and get the same ol' safe selection, or try Hoops Sport Bar & Grille and take a chance. It's your call. Though neither party could win in a battle royale de cuisine, neither is disappointing by any margin.

Mingle's Lounge
(413) 747-9939
1547 Riverdale St

Mingle's Lounge - George Carlin used to say that all singles bars end in "s." He didn't figure on Mingles, which is a huge karaoke bar, but intriguingly is right next to a motel. So if you do hook up, there's somewhere to go.

Shadow Lounge

Shadow Lounge - They could have easily filmed a scene from "Sex in the City" here. With its posh décor and sexy, dimly-lit interior, Shadow Lounge makes for a killer date spot. Located at [Address], it's a little classier than the pub down the corner.

Breaker's Billiards & Brews
(413) 736-6834
1270 Memorial Ave
West Springfield, MA

Breaker's Billiards & Brews - Here's the problem with most bars: the vibe sometimes dies around 1am.

The place usually keeps it going 'til way late-guaranteeing a late and out-of-control night.

811 Cottage St
Springfield, MA

Sblr Incorporated - Of the city's hundreds and hundreds of bars, Sblr Incorporated fits right in the middle of the bell curve - a place to hit with your buddies on the way to your ultimate destination.

Rookies Sports Bar

11 Tapley St
Springfield, MA

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

Pub Lounge

382 Dwight St
Springfield, MA

Pub Lounge - It has it all: a swank atmosphere, attractive crowd, and cheap drinks. Okay, okay, so maybe it doesn't have cheap drinks, but Pub Lounge is still a solid lounge. Not really a dance club, per se, but perfect more a more upscale option.
