The Low Down


Where to Sit: Booths in the upstairs mezzanine are best for people-watching.

What to Drink: There's a great selection of beers on tap, but don't overlook root beer or creamsicle ice cream floats. Unlimited refills on iced tea.

Know Before You Go: The Jazz Standard, a live jazz club, is downstairs. Two sets play weeknights, three on Fridays and Saturdays, and the cover varies ($15-$30). The full Blue Smoke menu is served, and there's no food or drink minimum.
