BOB Awards Winner's Guide

Palmer St.

Map412 W. Palmer St.
  • Nightlife/Play


The best thing about this spot, tucked away on a dead-end street that straddles South End and uptown? The games, aside from pinball and a few others, are free to play. Grab that joystick and stay awhile. The bar is no-frills and reasonably priced, with a slew of local brews.
