Thanks to south city entrepreneurs, Tick Tock Tavern received a refreshing revival, opening for the first time since the '90s in its original south city space. It maintains its old-school identity with wood-paneled walls decked out in vintage signage, owl paraphernalia and more. The straightforward drink least features a selection of beer, wine and spirits -- no-frills cocktails sing to the tune of about five bucks. For a snack, just head next door to Steve's Hot Dogs for a wiener with the works.
