If you’re looking for a neighborhood bar with great drink specials and lots of girls in leopard-print cardigans, go past East Nashville’s 5 Points down Gallatin to FooBAR. Located at 2511 Gallatin Avenue across from the Walgreens, FooBAR is always a good time.
It may seem a little out of the way from the standard East side bars, but once you get there, you’ll want to stay put rather than hopping from bar to bar in 5 Points. Another great thing about FooBAR is something that’s often overlooked at other bars. I am always complaining about smokey bars. While smoking is allowed at FooBAR, you’ll still be able to breathe because they seriously have the greatest ventilation. Between karaoke, live music, darts and pool, you’ll be entertained while you imbibe too; I certainly have never been bored there. Does anyone remember the Karaoke nights LG and T-Bag hosted?! Good times, good time.
Test out your karaoke skills (or lack thereof) in a very tolerant atmosphere on Monday nights, and indulge in $1 PBR from 9-11pm or $4 Rosepepper margaritas all night. Tuesday also offers $1 PBR from 9-11pm, as well as $5 for a draft beer and a shot of Sauza tequila. On “Whiskey Wednesdays” you can get any draft beer and shot of Bushmills whiskey for $6. $3 drafts and $4 Jameson on Thursday, $6 Stoli Cosmos and $4 Jameson on Saturday, and $4 draft PBR and a shot of Jim Beam on Sundays will keep you intoxicated for most of the week…without spending an arm and a leg.
