The Nodding Donkey

Just across the street from TABC, the Nodding Donkey is a sports bar for people tired of walls covered in cheesy memorabilia or Uptown residents looking for something less pretentiousness. A half-out, half-in design keeps the bar open and comfortable in the warmer months (which is, like, all of them), making this a destination on sunny afternoons when there are games to be watched. 

The signature drink, The Donkey Punch, comes in a mason jar and can be had for $3 during happy hour Monday-Friday, 3-7 pm.
