    Favorite Bar in Campus town?

    So the Headliners thread got me thinking, what is your favorite bar to go to in Campus town? Yes I know there are bars downtown but lets try to keep this within the Campus town region.


    I think my favorite is Cy's Roost, just because of the "patio" though the bathroom smells like ****.

    Second favorite might be EsTas or Welch Ave.

    What are your favorites?

    Es Tas by far. They probably have the best beer selection and I like the food.

    I would say
    1. Es Tas
    2. Welch Ave

    I really like the atmosphere at Es Tas and the food is great.
    Welch Ave is seems to be really cheap and it has a lot of seating.

    Paddy's and Cy's are nice but they're sooo expensive.

    Welch Ave because its actually kept up decently and i enjoy the more mellow mood now that I'm a grad student, after that it would be es tas (good drink selection and fried tacos).

    Pry Paddys. Seems like all my friends go there and then down to sips on the weekends when I visit.

    Free pool seals the deal

    I'm too much of a wildcard, people vote me out immediately so I took a hiatus.

    Welch Ave Station if I'm starting out semi-sober and/or want some food while I drink. Cy's Roost if I'm blind drunk after a football game.

    Welch Ave. You can sit around and have a few, or you can go balls to the wall. Nice place.

    I despise Cy's Roost. Smells like hot urine.

    Mine was always Welch Ave to start, then end across the street at Tazzels.

    It does have a funk to it, but when I'm drunk I don't notice it.

    Es Tas and Welche Ave.

    Can't say I am a fan of any of the others.
