I love Freddy's -- the bartenders are always great, the crowd is usually good. It has a good neighborhood bar atmosphere, and the back room (actually a side room) is a good place to go if you have a large group. Also, frogs and other reptiles in aquariums provide something to do while you're waiting for the bathroom. The neighborhood is fine if you're leaving with a group, but loners might want to call a local car service, as the area is a bit deserted late night.
Pros: fun, funky atmosphere, decent music
