Top bars

Irish Pub
“They have a roof top that features several "food trucks". If the weather is nice, it's a golden spot. It's also a great spot to catch some night life.”

“I’m not a huge fan of this place but other people are. New place made to look old, but no way it should be called a “Pub”. ”

Bar
“Elegant décor. Lively vibe, but not excessively noisy. Great for people-watching. Gayest of the unofficial gay bars, (which includes pretty much all of Lancaster's nicer bars, apart from the official one of course). Live music upstairs at Crazy Shirley’s some nights. Open til 2 am without fail 364 nights a year.”

Bar
“This is actually just a really good quality "regular bar", but I include it here because one of the managers, Steve Wood, is a world-class, award winning mixologist. Consequently, the on-menu cocktails are way above average, and you have maybe a 50-50 chance of being served by someone who will create and personalize vs just following recipes. ”

Nightclubs

Bar
“This place is a local brewery and has some great, heavy-hitting beers. Try She-Monster and Big Gruesome (our two favorites). This center-city location is great for the downtown vibe. Check out their brewery location for a different experience!”

Many specialty entrees including the very popular Fish Tacos, Ahi Tuna and the 551 West Burger, which is topped with peanut butter, jalapenos, bacon, and cheddar cheese. Add to that 24 beers on tap and there is something for everyone. With seating for 175 people and 3 private dining rooms it’s the perfect venue for any private party.”
