The Top 3 Bars in Downtown Bowling Green

It is difficult to pick the top 3 bars in the college town of Bowling Green, Ohio, because there are so many to choose from! With over 20 bars in its small downtown area, BG has something for everyone when it comes to nightlife – from sports bars to dance clubs to classy entertainment. You might try out Grumpy Dave’s for comedy nights or euchre tournaments, or Buffalo Wild Wings for sports games and famous grub. However, the three best clubs in Toronto listed here come up a little higher than the rest in terms of ambience, specials, and unique attributes:

1. Uptown Downtown Sports Bar and Deli:

Located at the corner of Main and Court Streets, Uptown Downtown is a two-in-one treat for bar-goers. The lower level, Downtown, is 21+, and offers the typical sports bar ambiance, complete with air hockey and foosball tables, plenty of plasma screen TVs showing all your favorite sporting events, and tons of specials, including free pool on Monday nights and $2.50 Long Island Iced Teas on Tuesdays.

For the younger crowd, Uptown is an 18+dance club, with themed nights all week long, including the local favorite, Monday 80s night. Dubbed “Bowling Green’s Most Famous Gathering Place,” you won’t want to miss the opportunity to experience this eclectic bar experience!

2. 149 North:

Recently opened at 149 North Main Street within the last 3 years, 149 (“One Four Nine”) boasts a large dance floor, comfortable seating, and a great selection of tunes. While you are sure to find a good crowd in there on weekends, I have found this to be an excellent place to hang out on weeknights. The atmosphere is more laid back, and you can find incredible specials, such as $1.00 off drafts on Mondays and Tuesdays, as well as Wednesday “Wine Night.” 149 is always 21+, so it is a good option for older college students, graduate schools, and local residents to frequent.

3. The Clazel:

One of the most unique bars in Bowling Green, the Clazel is a renovated movie theater located at 127 North Main Street. You will be blown away by the décor of this historical BG Landmark, which offers exceptional live entertainment throughout the week, a banquet facility for your events, and even a “Brew and View” series for film showings. You might also check out their themed nights, including “Goth Night” on Wednesdays and 18+ on Thursdays. Although you may pay a little more for drinks at this venue, you will certainly make up for it in ambiance and get a chance at a few knockout specials along the way!
