Even on a weeknight, the music at Printers Alley is usually pretty loud. So if you need an afterwork spot that feels upbeat, bring a group here and listen to some top-40. This Nashville-themed place has high ceilings and enough seating for very large groups, plus a menu with Southern bar food like fried pickles and popcorn chicken. There are also lots of TVs for anyone who needs to watch sports while they drink, and they do Happy Hour from 4-8pm daily.
