East End Hardware
The venn diagram of boozy snow cones and mid-2000s emo bangers finally has an overlap: East End Hardware, a bar at the edge of East Downtown. Converted into a bar from an actual hardware store, the inside looks more like a renovated small town community center you would see on a made-for-TV rom-com, so, charming. You could just as comfortably sip something alone at the bar as you could bring a few friends to hang on the patio. Plus, there’s a long list of craft beer, boozy cocktails, and a jukebox specifically curated to make any geriatric millennial weep with joy.
