The signature drink of Bob & Barbara's Lounge, "The Special", a combo of a Pabst Blue Ribbon can and a Jim Beam shot, is extremely popular in the neighborhood. Their weekly live jazz and drag show are equally crowd pulling. Bob & Barbara's Lounge has thus created its own niche among the city's many dives. The extremely friendly bartenders make your drinking experience all the more pleasing. Check out if you are searching for a place with character to enjoy your weekend evening.

Higher priced than other local bars. Very cramped interior. Not a great place if you're looking to hit the bars.

Divey and quite the unusual crowd but they have live jazz music and you can get a shot of Jim and a PBR for $3 which is pretty much a guaranteed good time if you have a strong stomach.

Drag night! Went here for a drag show a while ago, and had a blast! PBR is the beer of choice. Great for a night out with friends, for some fun times! Something different.

Bob & Barbara's! Bob & Barbara's is great hole in the wall kind of bar. Everynone seems to know each other. They have live music and cheap beer! What more can you ask for in a bar?!?

This place will never go out of style Everyone knows about the PBR,the Thursday Night drag show,Nate Wiley and the crowd pleasers, but this place is more than that. Any night, it's a decent place to venture in and some nights you can even play pictionary...

A bar for everyone... A gem on South Street - everyone is welcome inside these doors, this isn't a bar where you will be judged.

No Drag Show.... Boooo – I really enjoyed the Thursday night drag show this place had. It used to attract all kinds. But they stopped running int a few weeks ago.

This place is incredible whether you are just looking to get a drink, get wasted on a weekend night or if you have out-of-town friends to entertain. On weekends there's a cover, but its worth it. Cover includes a free drink and some of the best jazz music I've ever heard.
