Tony's Saloon | Downtown | Bar Food, Bars and Clubs | Restaurant
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).
