Formerly the sometimes-sketchy Serenader, the newly reopened and remodeled Heart and Dagger Saloon (also under new ownership) is a great spot to go out and have a few drinks. With an awesome beer garden under the shade of a lemon tree, it's a prime place to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon or wild Saturday night. There's a great rock 'n' roll jukebox, pool tables, and pinball, and even Ms. Pac Man. The drinks are affordable, and the staff and clientele are jovial. Best of all, this bar seems to have broken from the hipster mold as a place where people from all walks of life can come together to enjoy a drink or two and have a good time without breaking the bank.
