Cascade Room

Pub in Main Street

The perfect reinvention of a trad neighborhood bar, this is arguably Mount Pleasant's merriest watering hole. The ale list includes some great craft beers, including own-brand Main Street Brewing tipples, produced just a few blocks away. Hungry on the weekend? Indulge in the area's best Sunday evening roast ($19), plus a naughty Scotch egg side dish.

There's an excellent cocktail menu here; check the board above the bar for your options, then decamp to a back table to sip your prize. Happy-hour drink-and-dine specials run from 4pm to 6pm every day and there are additional daily specials to consider as well; ask your server for the latest info.
