Mangia Italiano is a classy 3 a.m. bar right in the middle of South Grand. There is plenty of free live music to be had, from Vinyl Fight DJ spins to the Dave Stone Trio’s incomparable jazz. The draft beer offers lots of local selections, with many more in bottles (Stag in cans for the neighborhood hipsters). The wine list has some good-value priced options with an emphasis on Italian varietals while serious cocktails with house infusions round out the drink list. Those looking to make a bad late-night decision can indulge in the pizza and other comfort foods. If you've been around the block a few times and remember Mangia from its humble beginnings as a smoky little bar, check out the newly expanded space and game room downstairs. There's also a lovely mural by neighborhood painter Wayne St. Wayne that appears to depict the history of the world, from Romulus and Remus to Monica Lewinsky - you’ll find something new each time you look at it. If the inside gets too packed, sit outside and enjoy a drink and some of South Grand’s best people watching.
