A popular River Market hangout thanks to its almost 200 beers (including 75 on tap) and more than decent bar food. It's now non-smoking, so families are welcome.
Serving: LD daily.
For those who dote on that milk of life, love and longing that's better known as beer, heaven must look a lot like the Flying Saucer, Little Rock's temple to the gods who visited the magic of hops, grain and yeast on mere mortals like us. Part of a chain with outlets in six states, the Saucer features a truly mind-boggling array of beers; 130 in bottles and over 75 on tap at last count, ranging in color from angel's tears to dark chocolate brown. For $18, you can join the Saucer's U.F.O. Club. Once you drink 300 beers (keeping track of them via a magnetic card), you get a party and a special plate with your name on it on the wall. In addition to all that sweet, sweet brewski, the Saucer has a full menu of pub grub, plus some of the best no-nonsense pub decor in town, heavy on wood and simple seating (we particularly like the dark, windowless man-lair downstairs, where the pool tables are), with big roll up doors at the front to let the wind in on spring evenings. Who could ask for anything more?
