If your crew is not feeling like dressing up, and you just want to grab a booth and hang out in a fun spot, check out The Bookhouse Pub. It’s a great place to grab a bite and some drinks while hanging out in a comfortable but interesting environment. There are kitschy figurines gazing out from all corners of the pub, and the kooky lighting gives it a unique flair. If you’re not looking for a meat market and you actually want to be able to talk to your friends, this could be your jam.
