All the ladies in Glen Allen love a big deck, and Bar Louie sports one of the biggest. With awesomely attractive specials on food and serious happy-hours drinks, the place also hasn't forgotten to offer plenty of bar space for ordering. The success comes from consistency, general manager Greg Svede says. Its busiest nights are Wednesday, Friday and Saturday — no surprise that they coincide with the best deals. Wednesday night has a wallet-friendly beer bucket special and a live DJ starting at 10. As for Keagan's, you'll find a huge place with plenty of entertainment. It stays hopping night and day with happy hours and an airy open bar (especially good when the weather is nice). And who doesn't want to drink draft beer from a repurposed fire truck or chow down on some expertly smoked pig? Halligan lets you do both.
