Price: $-$$

Serving: D daily.

Bar Details

The picture of dive bar: a concrete floor, Polaroids and beer signs covering just about every inch of wall space, a chandelier made of PBR cans and three pool tables, stained so heavily that if you squint, they look like maps. You come to this slender bar, one of only a handful that have a private club license that allows them to stay open until 5 a.m. and the only one in downtown — from wedding receptions, from concerts, from anywhere that drinks have been served — because you don't want the night to end. You leave after spending most of your time waiting in line for the bathroom and, if you're smart, eating a hamburger (a late-night delicacy), carrying a dank combination of sweat, spilled beer and decades of unventilated cigarette smoke and hamburger grease. And then you do it again the next weekend.

Burger Details

Brave the smoke and strangeness for one of Arkansas' best burgers ($6). The atmosphere may be questionable at times but the griddle is spotless and the cumin-laden burger patties are drool-worthy. The seedless bun is buttered heavily and Romaine lettuce pieces, tomato, hamburger dills and white onion ringlets come standard. Don't get fancy, just order yours with everything and pick off what you don't want. Side items are truly superfluous.

Music venue Details

This all-night club — the only one in downtown Little Rock — is the end of a funnel of nights spent out all over town. It hosts blues, rock and jam band music at 12:30 a.m. Fri.-Sat., plus occasional midnight shows midweek. $5 cover charge above private-club membership fee when there's music. Open daily at 3 p.m. for pool and other games, plus bar and grill. 21 and up. Smoking allowed.

    Some shift workers don't knock off work until 11 p.m. A night of fun that ends at 11 p.m. for someone who had a 5 p.m. quitting time would end at 5 a.m. for the shift worker who gets off at 11 p.m. Entertainment in those hours, after Waffle House and EZ Mart, is limited. And it will soon be more limited if some city directors have their way.
