Thanks to this bar’s $10 drinks ($7 during Happy Hour), this is a go-to party spot and somewhere students like to hit up for a late-night round of cajun fries. The drinks go down easy, specifically their mezcal apple cider mule and its vodka and rosemary counterpart Autumn In New Haven, both of which seem like the type of thing Rory Gilmore would drink during her time at Yale. The food menu offers fairly standard bar food—fried pickles and jerky waffle fries—that goes hand in hand with drinking and watching football games at the bar, but you can also have a quieter, laid-back dinner of sliders, salads, or sandwiches on the patio.

Bar isn’t so worried about New Haven pizza traditions. Their famous mashed potato and thick-cut bacon pizza isn't your standard apizza slice, and is all the better for it.

Sally's is a longtime pizza institution, and should be your first stop for trying New Haven-style apizza.
