Since opening in 2006, this hip, low-maintenance LoHi watering hole has attracted a large fan base of regulars, some of whom come in with their scooter clubs or kickball and hockey teams. It's a neighborhood bar through and through; many of the patrons are locals or newcomers to the area. That said, the Highland attracts a diverse group of folks, and the crowd can vary from night to night. The cozy spot has a patio and offers ping-pong, pool and foosball as well as video games. While it already had a decent selection of beer on tap, the tavern took things up a notch when it opened its kitchen in 2009. Nearly everything on the menu (which includes burgers, sandwiches, soups, salads and late-night bites) is made from scratch and is a step above the average pub grub.
