Small Bar

This month we’re headed to University Heights (pretty much directly under the University Heights sign) to the Small Bar.

True to its name, Small Bar is, well, small. It’s dark. It’s cozy. They have an extensive beer list. Beer not your thing? They have a full bar as well (their Bloody Mary’s are amazing). They DO serve food and their Wednesday night special is always seafood. There’s fun memorabilia on the walls and if you look carefully you’ll find some interesting hidden “art.”

So plan on joining us on Wednesday, February 28th starting at 6 p.m.


Cash or Credit? Small Bar takes both!!
Food? Small Bar has a fantastic kitchen. Please don’t bring outside food in.
Parking? Finding parking in the neighborhood can be a problem, so plan to Uber or Lyft or take a bus or walk or ride your bike or take a cab or…. (anything but drive if you can!)

Some of our recent bars

It’s a tradition to get our bartenders to hold our sign. Here’s where we’ve recently been.

We’re always open to hearing about bars we haven’t visited. Drop us a line if there is someplace you think we should check out.

“You can’t have a real country unless you have a beer and an airline — it helps if you have some kind of football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.”
