The Sidecar used to be a pretty average dive bar in Graduate Hospital. Then it was taken over by the people behind Mike’s BBQ and Stockyard Sandwich Co. and now the food is great. There are things like Detroit-style pizza, a Nashville hot chicken sandwich, plus a burger that’s only $5 during Happy Hour. The drinks are also solid, with a long draft list of both local and international stuff - all of which are $1 off during Happy Hour.
