Country

The Den

1116 N.W. Lower Silver Lake Road, Topeka

Marriage didn't work out for Sue and Willie Artzer, but the private club the ex's opened in 1984 has lasted. Willie died in 1999, and Sue now runs The Den -- a place she calls "down-home country, probably one of the last honky-tonks." Look for live, local country bands on Fridays and Saturdays. Locals fill the place the rest of the week.



Joletta's

600 NW Paramore Street, Topeka

One of the cleanest bars in town, hard wood walls, flags over windows, neon lights, darkened ambience, and lots of interesting characters of all walks of life, including cowboys, attorneys, blue collar workers, lots of working men. Bartender Jennifer Falley has 13 years of experience and knows how to take care of customers.



Goose Again

5630 SW 29th St, Topeka

Formerly Sidelines, Goose Again is a new sports bar located in Fleming Place. Goose Again opened in mid-October 2010 and is more than your typical bar and grill with a wait staff that goes above and beyond the effort you'd expect.

Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar

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.
