Half dive bar, half art bar, the Bonfire mashes both genres into an unassuming, low-lit watering hole. The tables outside fill with sunbathers by day and smokers by night, and both the art on the walls and the beer on tap rotate regularly. Food prices are good all the time—a cheeseburger with fries and a side of housemade creamy tarragon sauce will run you only $6. If the free pool tables don’t get you excited about some cheap entertainment, take a step back in time with original Pac-Man and Donkey Kong arcade games for a quarter apiece.

Happy hour: $3.50 food menu, $2.50-$3 microbrew pints, $1 off well drinks 2-7 pm daily.
