I recommend the Independent because the food is delicious, reasonably priced, cocktails are interesting and out of the norm. Bartenders and wait staff are friendly, attentive and know how to make you feel comfortable. A Huge Plus is that it is at the bottom of Prospect Hill, where I live....so no…

The most iconic restaurant/bar in Union Square. Dinner options, great bar, and nightly events like karaoke and trivia night.

This recently renovated neighborhood pub & restaurant is a favorite spot with locals to eat, drink, and hang out, serving a lineup of craft beers, classic cocktails, and comfort food. They're located right next door to Brass Union.

Nice local hangout spot with good food. The right side is a restaurant, and the left is the pub, but both have the same menu.
