Not the typical college bar on State. Has a cool feel, tree in the bar, sofas to lounge on, drinks were stiff. Good place to grab a drink before or after a show at the overture center.

Can't miss Paul's Club, the classy bar with the tree inside. Probably the best selection and cocktails on State Street. They've got a good variety of top shelf booze and attentive staff with decent bar-tending skills. Lounge sofas and over-stuffed chairs are very comfy and...More

This is a super, fun place to stop for a drink or two. Friendly, attentive staff, good drinks and good time! Bar seating, standing groups or intimate lounge setting- very comfortable place for talk or watching strategically located TVs.

How can you not enjoy a bar with a tree in it? even if it's fake. The layout flipped from the original, but they still have a healthy beer menu. There were a few mugs left behind the bar, but not all of the dusty...More
