This women-owned bar co-created by an ECC alum is your neighborhood gathering spot in Belleville. It’s laid-back-cool without even trying, hence why you can come as you are, whether you stop by after lounging at a nearby park or before heading to a concert—very rarely is Combat overly crowded. In the summer, outdoor seating spills onto the sidewalk, and people ordering and receiving drinks at the window add to the lively atmosphere. You can pretty much order whatever you're in the mood for here: great cocktails with new flavor profiles using homemade bitters and tinctures, no/low-ABV cocktails that are made with the same care as those with alcohol, natural wines, and beer. There are even aquavit and pickleback shots if you want to drink like you’re in college (but with much better alcohol).
