Hours: Daily 5pm-3am
Hair of the Dog offers respite from the Washington Avenue scene. This bar is frequented by downtown locals; it's the kind of place where the bartender will make fun your shot choice and whip you up something tastier, all while razzing the stiletto-ed party girls ducking in just to avoid long bathroom lines at neighboring clubs. He doesn't care how low-cut your top is -- if you aren't here for the sauce, no promises to come back with all your friends will save you from his sarcastic jibes. Don't miss: the awesome "Dead Fat Comedians" wall art by local artist and guerrilla graffiti-ist Peat Wollaeger, the kitschy signage and a rousing game of Big Buck Hunter.
