BarFly's Review of Scooter McQuade's

Scooter’s is a frat bar for a college that doesn’t exist, weirdly thriving for decades on the rim of Vaseline alley, and there’s one simple reason: Scooter’s will get you drunk.

Despite all odds and the collective endeavors of the oppressive OLCC, this one bar eems to be entirely on your personal side in the project of deranging your senses. For a mere 6 dollars, a barely-mitigated tall cocktail will wreck you. Greasy small-scale bar food will sustain you.

And then, as always, there are Scooter’s signature dirt-cheap vodka-bangled Jello sliders, whether orange or lime or cherry or distinct house concotion. Each Jello shot is cheap, slightly creepy when it hits your tonsils, and makes you feel like a drunk 5-year-old, more than slightly scary when jammed against the long bar as a tumescent crawl of thick-necked chucklers ooze through the eternally packed alcove.

Open 10am-2:30am everyday. 50 cents off everything 4-7pm M-F.
Wed. DJs 9-close

If you drop your wallet dont bend over in this place to pick it up. Boatloads of old cheap bastards and gay guys. Now I have never used the bathroom but there's gotta be a glory hole there.

The bartender was ok. The cook looked like a recovering meth addict and my nachos were disgusting. You really cant fuck up a beer on draft so at least that tasted good.

I dont know why anybody would go here except to pre-funk for the fish grotto and panorama, sad to say that would not be me, but those guys are welcome to have a gay ol' time here.

A Night of Firsts

I'd like to say I lost my virginity at this bar, but that's not exactly true. However, in a way, I did experience a few firsts. My first Jello shot, my first Mai Tai, and my first Lemon Drop. A convenient little bar within walking distance of me. Friendly staff and service, and nice strong drinks.

Cheap stiff drinks

Good drinks. Good food, now served until midnight. During the day regulars and local wackos. At night full of 20 somethings having a great time. Love the bartenders

Great cheap drinks

great stop on your way downtown. drinks are cheap and strong - don't forget the jello shot! Usually pretty crowded with only 2 servers so service can sometimes be tough to get. Fun oollege like bar crowd.
