Northside Tavern has been around since 1972, which makes it a classic by default, and it hasn’t changed much over the years, which is why we like it. It’s the definition of a dive bar, with cheap beers and strong well drinks, but it’s also maybe the only place on the Westside with live music seven nights a week.
