A drive down Parmer Lane presents a variety of eating options from familiar fast food stops to unique ethnic flavors. Residents drive from one shopping center to another for various nightlife spots, but local patrons love the late-night spots in Lamplight Village.
Head down the road to Opal Divine’s Marina for a more pub-like atmosphere with dozens of craft-brewed and imported draught beers, an impressive tequila selection and the best whiskey bar in town. The ample outdoor seating area provides a relaxed, dog-friendly
space to enjoy the weekly drink specials. The kitchen stays open late to serve up gourmet char-grilled burgers alongside pints, and opens early on the weekends for brunch and a Sun-Dried Divine Mary, made with sun-dried tomato, poblano peppers and garlic-infused vodka.
Located in a strip mall, Parmer Lane Tavern may not look like much on the outside, but it attracts many eclectic regulars. Go on a Wednesday night, and order a $2 you-call-it while the local blues guy croons in the background. If the pool tables, shuffleboard, darts, jukebox or arcades aren’t enough, you can sit in on a poker hand most weekdays. The bar doesn’t serve food, but the pizza place next door delivers.
