The 80's Bar
Travel to Lansford for a rad throwback at The 80's Bar. This full-service restaurant and bar has a great line-up of live entertainment and seasonal drink specials as well as a bodacious menu with wings, sandwiches and full meals if you're in the mood for dinner. Don't miss the chance to try their signature shooters like the "Lemon Drop," "Washington Apple," and "Pineapple-Upside Down Cake."
Cinder Inn Bar & Grill
From the pool table to karaoke to trivia night, the Cinder Inn Bar & Grill in East Stroudsburg has great extras to go along with your happy hour. Split a "boozy bucket" of seasonal sangria with friends, and take advantage of rotating daily specials on wings, sliders and shareable apps.
Crazy Country Club
The roots of the Crazy Country Club stretch back to 1950s Brooklyn, and the Hawley location keeps up the original comedy club's tradition of "warm beer and lousy food" with plenty of gimmicks and a wacky and welcoming atmosphere for all. Enjoy half-price drinks on select Mondays and family night on select Thursdays. You're sure to find great food, great drinks and great laughs.
Downriver Brewing Co.
Blow off some steam after work at this Stroudsburg hangout and brewery, complete with axe throwing lanes! Hit the mark at Downriver Brewing Co. with beers for all tastes as well as small bites, tacos and wraps from the kitchen. Events include live entertainment and shows, trivia and open mic nights.
Jam Room Brewing Co.
From their origins in a "jam room" basement to the newly-opened location in Greentown, PA featuring a beer garden, tasting room and Sound Bites Restaurant, the Jam Room Brewing Company has come a long way over the years. Discover this local favorite for yourself and enjoy a Friday, Saturday or Saturday filled with great music, delicious food and craft beers and ciders.
Jive Bar & Lounge
There's no place quite like the Jive Bar & Lounge on Broad Street in Milford. There are two distinct spaces to experience: the refined and upscale main lounge and the down-to-earth, laid-back garage bar. From truffle fries and sophisticated cocktails to pretzel bites and hand-crafted beers, this local watering hole is great for everything from date night to a chill evening catching up with old friends.
ShawneeCraft Brewing Company
On the shores of the Delaware River, the barrels at ShawneeCraft Brewing Company yield delicious craft beers. Up to 10 brews are on draft in the Tap Room, where you can also enjoy a casual meal and live entertainment. Want to double up on your happy hour? Head up the hill to the Gem and Keystone Pub, also located on the grounds of The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort.
Three Hammers Winery
The bold, classically-styled vintages from Three Hammers Winery are the perfect way to end the day. Visit the Tasting Counter after exploring the scenic winery grounds in Hawley, or reserve a snow globe or fire barrel in the winter. The Wine Lounge in Honesdale is open Friday and Saturday evenings, offering wine flights, wine by the glass and bottle service.
