    I love love love love going to Bangers! Full Warning though, it can get extremely packed as well as every other bar on Rainy street! Bangers is part of the Rainy Street district (Old Homes that are being turned into bars) and that is not a lot of parking, so you will have to walk there. Bangers is just great! ...

    Somewhat a more professional crowd than the 6th street nightmare. Lot of techies! The bar is beautiful, a lot of wood inside and on the patio. Drinks are on the weak side, but then we are not there to get to drunk!

    #BeOut The best description we have heard of for this bar is “old house meets sports bar.” They play all types of music and have all types of GIANT games (like Jenga and checkers) and even cornhole on field turf. Can you tell how excited we are just thinking about it? We suggest you head in and order a Deep ...

    A fairly new development on Rainey St. Rainey used to be strictly residential but all the old houses are being converted into bars. It's a neat little area of town, with a little more class than dirty 6th street. Javelina has an amazing veggie burger and the chips and queso are yummy too. Indoor bar with a patio and tables ...

    This restaurant is located at the bottom floor of the Hilton. I only came here because it was convenient, but they actually serve some pretty decent food! I came here twice for brunch. The first meal I ordered was the fish tacos. They're a pretty legit size, but again, you do pay more for it. They were filling, but it ...

    A great place to grab a drink and catch live music while on South Congress. There is a cover charge but the affordable drinks and above average bands are worth it.
