Pat's Pub information
Saved from gentrification annihilation by its grungy location, Pat's Pub started a century ago and has recently dusted off the jazz chops that saw Jelly Roll Morton play here back in the day. Saturday afternoon sees no-cover jazz shows from 3pm, while there are open mikes and other events throughout the month. The good-value beer menu includes house-brewed Pat's Classic Lager.
The food is a cut above typical pub fare – pulled pork sandwiches and yam fries, for example – and almost everything on the menu is under $10. Spot the beer tanks through the glass panel. Feel free to blow them a kiss.
