The Brazen Fox is great for when you want to watch some sports with friends in a place that doesn’t smell like stale beer and body odor. You might get a little whiff of those things (it gets kind of crowded), but this is definitely a nicer pub. It’s clean, modern, there are two floors, and they have a pretty huge menu. The food isn’t anything special, but it’ll keep you from getting too drunk too fast (and there are dollar oysters all day every day).
