    I like the bar at Carmine's - especially for happy hour. Great prices for great food (ex. $1.75 mozzarella sticks, $3-something for a two-topping bambino pizza (they make my favorite pizza - order it well done). Nice place to hang and watch any game you want. Also has 2 pool tables.

        I also hear that Firefly Bistro just opened a wine bar in their space. I've always enjoyed myself there. Mike & Anne's is great, too; but it's definitely a restaurant. No bar to speak of.

            if you're looking for wine bars, i like the bar at mike & anne's on mission or the wine bar at mission wine with chris meeske. he's got wine tasting everyday and craftsman on tap, but it's more of a wine shop.
