Ollie Irene 2713 Culver Rd 205-769-6034 MOUNTAIN BROOK
Ollie Irene takes the concept of a traditional gastropub and elevates it to an amazing new level. A delightful destination if you like specialty cocktails, craft beer or just some seriously deli- cious handcrafted food, sourced from fresh, local ingredients.
Before you eat, we recommend you spend a little time at the bar carved from a beautiful 140-year-old white oak tree. There s a good reason the menu features the Kitchen Apprecia- tion order, which buys a beer for every cook in the kitchen. You ll understand once you ve tasted the food. Hayley S.
On Tap Sports Café 737 29th St S 205-320-1225 BIRMINGHAM
Finally, a sports bar that takes their sports and their food seriously. As the name might suggest, On Tap Sports Café has one of the finest draft beer selec- tions in Birmingham, and their large collection of big-screen televisions is hard to turn down when the big game comes on.
Just make sure you come hun- gry they serve some of the best pub fare around. Also located in Hoover and Inverness. I always go to On Tap whenever there s a game I need to watch. Or whenever I m hungry. Or thirsty. Basically, I m at On Tap a lot. Matt B.
