The old-school Rail is perfect for grabbing a beer in a traditional Brit-pub setting, but what really makes it special is its enduring commitment to the indie music scene. Its little stage has seen dozens of rising stars launch their careers and it's still the best place in town to catch passionate, consistently high-quality acts, ranging from folk to metal to bluegrass to polka. If you don't like what's on, just slink to the back bar. Arrive before 7pm and there's no cover charge, but since this goes to the bands, you might like to pay it anyway.

Expect regional microbrews from the likes of Tree Brewing and Central City (go for its ESB) and hit the hole-in-the-wall kitchen for late-night nosh, including burgers and quesadillas. Arrive early enough and you might snag the corner window table overlooking the streets. Don't forget your hot nuts – from the vending machine by the bar.
