BarFly's Review of White Owl Social Club
Formerly, Plan B.
If you're a locaholic, vegan, metalhead, the White Owl Social Club is your spiritual home. (Don't panic - they serve meat, too). Inside, you'll find a smallish stage, a medium-length bar, well-stocked with an emphasis on local distillations and brews, and generous diner-style booths (which may be removed during the larger shows), but who cares about the inside - the shining star is the bar's epic patio.
One of the largest in town, it makes for a perfect place to day-drink and laze in the sun. During the other 10 1/2 months of the year, you'll find a large, covered, heated smoking/drinking area, and a cozy firepit for your huddling pleasure.
Sexy people can be found on both sides of the bar. The food is terrific (you will be cheerfully accommodated even if you have a million food allergies), the drinks are reasonable, and the staff is on point. Live shows range from straight up rock and roll, to comedy nights. The White Owl regularly hosts daytime stuff like crafty bazaars, record swaps, etc., as well as private events, so be sure to check the calendar on their website.
Open 3pm-"late," daily. (Late is usually at least 1am Sunday-Thursday, and 2:30am on Fridays and Saturdays.)
