The Haps: The Lackman

In late September an awesome bar opened in OTR called The Lackman.  Mellow vibe, good people, great beers.  Can you really ask for more?

They have a great Happy Hour from 4pm to 8pm, and as you all know, since I work so far away I am always looking for Happy Hours that last longer than the norm.  Specials include $2off drafts, $2 domestics, $3.50 imports, $3.50 Micro-drafts and calls, and $5 wine.

When Jeff and I checked it out, the bartender we had was really knowledgeable, and picked a great beer for me to sample, which I ended up ordering.

 I just want to note that the Lackman did not ask me to write this post.  Bars downtown can be so unstable, so I am always looking for a bar that I think really deserves to make it.  The Lackman is one.  Go check them out for their awesome Happy Hour specials or spend the whole night there.  For my lovely UC readers- their car bombs are the same price as Woody's (Who I will always love!) so its totally worth the trip to OTR!

You can follow the Lackman on twitter @thelackman for updates on specials and seasonal changes :)


  1. Tab, the bar tender is one of the more knowledgeable in town. Its gonna be my downfall though, when I walk in he's always, hey 5chw4r7z you have to try this one, or you don't want this you want that.
    Not that they ever carry a beer that isn't awesome, he just knows my tastes.
    They carry smaller kegs too and firkins for a higher turnover of what they carry.

  2. We had a woman. I didn't get to catch her name, and I really wish I would have. I will definitely find myself there pretty frequently.
