Double D Karaoke, lovingly known as Double D's, is in fact a karaoke bar, but that's not the only reason regulars fill up the place on weeknights and weekends alike. Cheap drinks — including $1 Jell-O shots — and a chill atmosphere wedge Double D's somewhere between "agreeable dive bar" and "high-energy club." The bar was actually founded in Brentwood in 1947, and the current owners bought it in 2001. It's hard to beat its happy hour, Monday through Friday from 4 to 7 p.m., which features $1.50 drafts and $3 rail wells. For post-grads struggling with the realities of a low paycheck, it's a cheap and low-key alternative to blowing all your cash on Washington Avenue or even Ballpark Village. Plus, you may just get drunk enough to get up and sing.
