Rainey Street used to be a quiet street near the lake. Then it became a quiet street where a few houses were flipped into bars with rocking chairs and ping pong tables. Today, every house is a bar. Lustre Pearl has one of the bigger footprints in the area, with multiple levels and bars inside. Come for a day drinking session with a big group.
