Lucky Bones prides itself on having the coldest beers in the area — kept a few degrees colder then necessary and served out of ice-chilled glasses. It’s said to be cold enough to make the Coors Light marketing team jealous.

The restaurant offers 16 beers on a rotating tap, wines by the glass and bottled and mixed drinks.

Singer-songwriter showcase venue:
