Everything is eclectic at this cowgirl/pirate/bordello/cabaret-themed bar and restaurant - menu,decor, crowd and, of course, the in-house sound box. You'd expect nothing less at a place builtaround the motto "Eat, Drink, Rock, Raise Hell."

There's plenty of the good ol' rock 'n' roll on favorite albums by AC/DC, The Rolling Stones,David Bowie and The Butthole Surfers. To keep things interesting, the bar's friendly staff alsoadded more obscure selections by the likes of Gene Autry and The Andrews Sisters.

Runners-up: St. James Tavern, Press Grill
