Velp Avenue has no shortage of bars, but you’ll want to check out the Avenue Bar for its friendly bartenders, cheap drinks and welcoming crowd. This lively Howard dive bar offers some great drink specials, including happy hour Monday through Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. During happy hour, cocktails are $1 off and you can get a domestic tap or bottle of beer for just $2. If you’re looking for a weeknight karaoke spot, stop by the Avenue on Wednesday nights. Want to leave the singing to the professionals? The Avenue also hosts regular live music, including local band Whiskey Ditch.
