Abigail's Grill & Bar

3701 SW Plaza Drive, Topeka

Formerly That Place, Abigail's Grill & Bar opened in November 2011. Owned by Frank and Abigail Saiya, Abigail's aims to be a neighborhood bar for South Topeka. With a menu that features breakfast all day with a southern twist (think comfort food), Abigail's will also have burgers and sandwiches to go along with a full bar.



J&J Gallery Bar

917 N. Kansas Ave., Topeka

After their biker bar in Emmett went up in flames in 2009, Jona and John Rupnicki found a new location in downtown North Topeka. In the fall of 2012, Ruffnecks reopened as J&J Gallery Bar to blend in with the NOTO arts district. Inside, you'll find plenty of cold beer as well as featured artwork from local artists. Live music is showcased on the weekends. (Updated 10.12)



Philip Billard VFW Post 1650

3110 S.W. Huntoon, Topeka

Veterans both young and old mix in this relaxed setting where cold beer is the perfect accompaniment to war stories or a game of Keno. Texas Hold ’Em and karaoke alternate as entertainment on Thursday nights. Mostly, it's a place where regulars can meet up -- an elite group that has the shared experience of foreign service.



Mikey's Bar & Grill

205 E. U.S. 24 Highway, Rossville

This place has a warm homey feeling, where everybody knows your name. It's a small-town bar and information center, where you can find out what's going on in town. You're welcome here. Families and bikers and anyone connected with life on Highway 24 may want to stop in here for a few laughs and good times.



Moose Lodge

1901 N. Kansas Ave., Topeka

Once the most popular dining, drinking and dancing destination in the city, the Moose Lodge remains a vibrant social and service club with nearly 1,300 members. It offers full-service dining and live bands three nights a week, bingo three times a week and karaoke on Sundays. The Moose supports veterans activities and the JROTC program at Topeka High. And, yes, there's a moose head in the ballroom!



Poor Bills

840 N. Kansas Ave., Topeka

Pull up to the bar and chat up the locals by the soft glow of neon bar signs. Poor Bill's offers daily specials from its full bar. The White Russians are especially popular, but pale in comparison to beer's draw.



The Celtic Fox

118 S.W. 8th, Topeka

Fancy a pint? Find a bit of Ireland in this cool limestone storefront in downtown Topeka. This bar serves all the great Irish beers -- Smithwicks, Harp and Guinness -- from a long wood bar. Fill your belly with Irish classics like shepherd’s pie or a Reuben sandwich. The Fox draws a varied crowd, from area regulars to state lawmakers. It also books parties. (updated: 3.10.12)



Victoria's

5011 S.W. Topeka Blvd., Topeka

Opened in 2008, Victoria's is still building a reputation on the bar scene. It has lots of neon beer signs and plenty of mirrors (great for touching up lipstick). The full-service bar is run by a friendly staff willing to mix just about anything for you, and they keep the place clean.



Dugout

1545 SW Fairlawn Rd., Topeka

If you're looking for an ice-cold beverage with a side of entertainment, look no further. The Dugout has it all. The friendly, sports-oriented atmosphere offers 11 TVs, five pool tables, karaoke on Friday and Saturday nights, free popcorn and $3 half-pound cheeseburgers on Tuesdays and Thursdays -- not to mention NASCAR Sundays.



Wild Horse Saloon

3249 S.W. Topeka Blvd., Topeka

Saddle up next to one of four bars -- two main bars and two satellite operations that dole out beer and shots. The slogan is "where Topeka parties at night," and the partying picks up as most good little cowboys and cowgirls are headed for bed. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and by 10 p.m. the dance floor is full. It’s especially busy on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights.
