Best Bar (West End and Short Pump)

Bar Louie

Readers' Pick

OK fine, it’s a chain. But is that so surprising in Short Pump? Lots of Capital One credit cards run through this place, which can hold 300-plus people. Two bars and plenty of room for weekday specials: $3 drafts, $4 wine, $5 martinis, 4-7 p.m. And 18-ounce Buds for $2, says a hostess, over the din of the after-work crowd. 440-7301

Second Place: Capital Ale House

Third Place: Mekong
