It may be the diviest of 213's roster of revamped downtown bars (the company owns Golden Gopher, Broadway Bar, Seven Grand, Casey's Irish Pub and more), but Tony's is still a welcoming spot to imbibe. The area is a bit sketchy, but the bar has its own parking lot, and the room itself is old but handsomely yet tastefully redone. Gutted years ago, the space has a large back bar (brought over from a 19th-century saloon in Utah before 213 took over), shiny booths, soft lamp lighting and a great smoking patio complete with a ping-pong table. Hunter S Thompson gets nods in fixtures here (213's Cedd Moses, who's a fan, says the bar reminded him of Thompson's famed haunt, the Woody Creek Tavern in Colorado) and on the drink menu (there's a bounty of Thompson's favorite bourbons displayed behind the bar).
