The Liberty is one of the oldest bars on East 6th and while the warehouses that once surrounded it have been replaced by condos, it’s still one of the best places to drink on the street. Inside you can play pool or post up around the bar, or you can head to the backyard and grab a spot at one of the many picnic tables. You’ll run into someone you went on a Tinder date with three years ago while you wait in line at East Side King, but just say hi and offer them a fried beet, or do your best to completely avoid eye contact.
