Barflies, punks and hipsters coexist peacefully around Burlington's most awkwardly placed pool table. The bartenders here don't force small talk — and that's part of the appeal. Named best place to go if you have resting bitch face in the 2015 Seven Daysies readers' picks awards, this relaxed bar is home of the PB Army. Grab a seat by the large open-air window facing Main Street and watch the world go by.
If it's karaoke you seek, look no further. This classic dive serves up wannabe rock stardom at least three nights a week.
This cozy and usually low-key hang is noted for a killer beer selection, good pub grub and local bands on the weekends. (Pro tip: Swing by on Fridays for deals on Philly cheesesteaks and Heady Topper.)
Owner Bob Beauvais describes this true neighborhood watering hole as "the best damn make-you-feel-at-home bar."
The OP is the crown cubic zirconium of Burlington dives. It features drink specials every day of the week — we're partial to PBR pitchers on Tuesdays — and one of the more competitive pool tables in town.
This Old North End staple has the distinction of being the only bar in town with a view of a cemetery. So that's something.
The Needs has great beer, lively pool tables and an enormous outdoor patio. Swing by at 5 p.m. on weekdays for Duff Hour: a double dose of "The Simpsons" and dollar drafts.
