Don's Club Tavern
Also known as Don’s Mixed Drinks (because of the wording on the old-school neon sign outside), this is a dive with staying power — it celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2022. Purchased by local bar conglomerate Little Pub Company in 2006, Don’s has retained a certain welcoming “old man’s basement” atmosphere. The secluded smoking patio and Skee-Ball machine are highlights, as is the vending machine dispensing fun packs of such goodies as condoms, burritos, cigarettes, candy and who knows what else. The bar caters to oldtimers during the day and is a packed hangout for the younger set at night.
