The Heavy Anchor

Known for its penchant to host a rowdy concert or two, The Heavy Anchor is part music venue, part watering hole. A thick wall divides the two halves, so the uninterested can drink in peace or join the fray of wild heathens on the music side. The bartenders serve cocktails in Mason jars, Heavy Anchor pins to festive-up that tatty punk jacket, and, just in case your Franzia problem is so out of control that you need a fix even in full view of strangers, boxed wine. The venue itself features a mid-level stage and a full-size sound booth, but it's the kind of place where bands feel comfortable enough to skip the stage and perform on the floor should they so desire. Nautical decor stretches from wall to wall with oceanic artifacts and vibrant paintings including a glaring narwhal and a friendly blue octopus toppling a cityscape with its tentacles. Located near Bevo Mill, The Heavy Anchor is a prime spot for shuffleboard playing with a regulation board and plenty of seating. Additionally weekly festivities include the likes of movie nights and trivia. You'll find local brews on tap, as well as such hometown munchies as Dogtown pizza, Billy Goat chips and Gus' pretzels.
