20 Cool Neighborhood Bars
These low-key hangouts fit the Cheers peg with budget-friendly booze and bar chow.
(SPOT.ph) If you ever saw an episode of the iconic '80s sitcom Cheers, then you probably know of the show’s equally iconic, neighborhood bar-inspired theme song (sing: "sometimes you want to go, where everybody knows your name...") Affordable, cozy, casual, and usually just a hop, skip, and a step away from where you live, these low-key hangouts fit the Cheers peg with budget-friendly booze and bar chow, a come-as-you-are dress code, plus a relatively non-commercial location away from the hustle and bustle of the metro. Here, our top picks from north to south.
