Elmer’s Pub takes patrons back to the days when dive bars were the rage. If you don’t mind hanging out with the locals and shooting a few rounds of pool, Elmer’s is the place for you. It has live bands on the weekends, mostly spouting cover versions of rock and roll and grunge. There’s even a space for people to dance, and a darts board in the corner also beckons. There’s a good choice of food and drinks that come both bottled and on tap, local and international.
