Bob & Barbara’s

Bob & Barb’s, a fixture on the quieter half of iconic South Street, features what might be the biggest collection of displayable Pabst Blue Ribbon memorabilia in the country. It also carries a timeless my-first-dive vibe that’s endeared it to pretty much everyone who’s pounded a pint here since it opened in 1969. Stop in on weekends for live music from The Crowd Pleasers.

Thursday night is drag night, hosted by the inimitable Miss Lisa. Do not step on the train of Miss Lisa’s dress or there will be hell to pay.
