Dark and moody, Area 7 Music and Ale is an off-the-beaten-path kind of hangout for a locals-only crowd. A platform stage surrounded by mirrors near the front door is often occupied by a local rock band trying to make a name for itself. Busty women in corsets fling around the stripper polls and dance in the cages to the alternative music blaring through the speakers. The large wooden bar in the center of the room is filled with tattooed folks sharing stories about being on the road and days gone by. The walls have all the typical bar trimmings, including neon beer signs and electronic dartboards. There are nightly specials throughout the week, including ladies' night and $20 for all you can drink for the guys.
