Highland Tap is one of the best spots in town no matter the time of day (or night) for drinks and some food. The burger is great, the waits are never too long, and the front patio makes for great people watching. Get a side of the kids mac and cheese (trust us when we tell you it’s way better than the regular version), and watch the K-State folks in the bar area get rowdy when the Wildcats play.

Postino in LoHi is the type of wine bar we can get behind: good prices, some food, and a great patio.
For large group outings, head to Finn’s in Five Points. It’s a great cocktail bar with rotating food trucks.
