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)

For the hungry, Speck's offers a three-pound hamburger.



Hooters

6100 SW 10th, Topeka

Water's Edge Lounge, Capitol Plaza Hotel

1717 S.W. Topeka Blvd., Topeka

This bar is a great place to get away from the rest of Topeka and mingle with people from across the country. The bar is in an open canopy filled with a lot of natural light, plants, fountain and pond with water passing through. You sit down and forget you're in Topeka. Order food from Falling Water Grille. Public is welcome.



Riegel's 20's West

901 S.W. Fairlawn Road, Topeka

The strip-mall space got a facelift two years ago and is a great place to catch big games. Just about everything looks good on the two new 60-inch HDTVs. (There are four other TVs, too.) The 20's West replicates much of the original place but with food. Don't overlook the 10-ounce KC Strip with salad, baked potato and roll for only $10. (Updated 7.22.09)



Michelle's Lounge

605 SW Fairlawn Road, Topeka

Margaritas and daiquiris are mixed to perfection.
