Hot Pockets

1909 NE Seward Ave, Topeka

The pool hall also serves bar food, such as cheese sticks, fries and hamburgers. This is a neighborhood bar that allows minors in until 8 p.m. Sharon Suwalski has owned the bar for three years. She previously ran a different bar in North Topeka for 10 years.



Whiplash

2107 S.E. California Ave., Topeka

Whiplash is a laid-back place where nearby residents and people who used to live in the area kick back with drinks. It claims to have the best cheeseburger in town, but what really sticks out is the homemade roast beef sandwich. With roast beef piled high on two slices of Texas toast, a huge pile of mashed potatoes and homemade gravy, it's the special each Wednesday.



Jeremiah Bullfrogs Bar & Grille

2940 SW Wanamaker Rd, #130, Topeka

Jeremiah Bullfrogs is a great place to watch sports in Topeka. Enjoy the friendly atmosphere with lots of space for your whole group to enjoy the big game.



Cousin's Tavern

1211 S Kansas Ave, Topeka

Sporting events aren't just a hobby at Cousin's, they're an addiction. If the big game comes on early, the doors open early, too. And the six TVs and an 8-by-8-foot projection screen are warmed up and ready to go. Grab your favorite beer and your favorite shot (mostly tequila) and join the fun with owners Ed and Leonard Ramirez. Check out the wall of murals featuring their late brother, Pee Wee.



Henry T's Bar & Grill

1521 S.W. 21st St., Topeka

This spacious bar and grill imported from Lawrence packs in the fans for KU games, but it isn't exclusively a favorite of Jayhawk faithful. Henry T's -- located near Washburn University -- serves up rum specials every day as well as other specials that will quench your thirst. Check out their great wings and burgers served with insane amounts of French fries.



Skivies Bar & Grill

921 S. Kansas Ave., Topeka

Formerly the Tool Shed Tap, Skivies opened in downtown Topeka in May 2011. Like the Tool SHed, Skivies is a relaxed neighborhood bar — lots of people who know each other. The dance floor stays full on weekends. The bar's focus is on its gay clientele, but it draws in a lot of straight customers, too.



Oscar's

1424 S.W. Lane St., Topeka

Oscar's is one of the original College Hill bars. It has daily drink and food specials, serving burgers, fries, roast beef, and mashed potatoes and gravy. College students hang out here, but a number of older regulars also frequent Oscar's.



The 20's

2910 S.W. Oakley, Topeka

Owner Hank Hulsing calls the place "probably the best 'Cheers' bar in Topeka." Even at 10 a.m. on a weekday morning, he can look at a bar already filling with regulars -- the same folks filling seats since it opened in 1973. And yes, there's a guy named Norm. Regulars don't even need to order. Bartenders just know what they want to sip while playing pitch.



Skinny's Sports Bar & Grill

4016 S.W. Huntoon, Topeka

When Chiefs and KU fans gather to pull for their teams, they don’t have to look hard for one of 30 TVs. Skinny's is big on food, too, especially its wings (try them at "volcanic" hotness if you dare). Skinny’s generally can mix what you want from its full bar, but domestic beers are most popular. The crowd skews younger as the night goes on, and there's a DJ on Friday and Saturday nights.
