The Quest 416 24th St S 205-251-4313 BIRMINGHAM

Enjoy live drag shows and great DJs at The Quest, the only dance club in Alabama open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Located just a few blocks from the Lakeview district, The Quest is a great last stop and the only place to dance til dawn. The Quest is super fun, especially on drag night. Amelia E.

Rag s 728 29th St S 205-327-7247 BIRMINGHAM

This small bar and grill in Lake- view is a great place for drinks and the food is worth celebrating as well. Owned by two Italian brothers, Bobby and Johnny Lorina, Rag s specialties include homemade potato chips, baked feta and delicious Italian dishes. My favorite spot for happy hour. Plus the recipes are passed down from generation to generation and are wonderful! Jessica H.
