City by City Listings


This year's bars, clubs and coffeehouses survey is Metro's most exhaustive yet. We've added billiard halls, microbreweries, juice bars and wineries. Clubs are listed here by city and are cross-referenced by the category under which they are listed.

The capsule descriptions provide the kind of information we would want to know before deciding where to spend an evening: what amenities the bar provides, what kind of beverages, hours and entertainment schedules.
