Looking to have a few drinks in a fun bar Sunday night before a 7pm show at Lupo's..anything in walking distance..(we're staying at Biltmore..) Also, can you walk to Red Stripe or too far?? Thanks..

    If you want a good dive bar, I would suggest Blake's Tavern across the street from Lupo's. If you want something upscale, I would try Aspire at The Hotel Providence.
    Bravo on the corner of Washington and Empire is one of my favorites for a bite to eat and an adult drink!

      I recommend either Local 121 or Blakes, depending on what you're looking for. Blake's has good beer on tap and decent pub fare (although I have to disagree with the description of a "dive bar". It's not high-end, but hardly a dive. It's pretty much a straight-up sports bar). Across the street is Local 121 which has a beautiful bar with well-poured drinks. The food is spotty though.

      Red Stripe is too far to walk. Local121 or Trinity Brewhouse would be my pick.

        Red Stripe is much too far. I've never been to either of these so I'm going just on hearsay....

        Local 121, Washington St
        Temple, at the new Marriott Renaissance (but I think it may be loaded w/faux eurotrash types)
        Aspire at the Hotel Providence
