Horseshoe Lounge — Original (closed)
The Horseshoe Lounge is like a perfectly worn-in shoe. They have drinks, but you're also welcome to bring your own. They have food, but only potato chips and peanuts. Basically, it's live and let live in this old-timey country bar that sits just down the road from the fancier shops of SoLa.
The Horseshoe Lounge's original location on South Lamar closed in 2015. Don't fret, though — that bar is scheduled to reopen in a new spot on Riverside come 2016.
