Bars & Cafes
A visit to Kitchen Pass is about so much more than just food and drinks, although they most definitely deserve mention. While you get to gorge on a Cyndie burger or Cajun chicken sandwich, this restaurant and bar has an assortment of provisions for your entertainment. There are always some great live musical acts lined up, and if you book your tickets well in advance, you could even manage to get group discounts. The event space, the ByPass, also hosts comedy shows. The outdoor patio also hosts performances, and is a good spot to chill out with a beer.
Blackthorn Pizza & Pub is your local pizza place when you're craving for the good ol' 'zza! Located on Joplin Avenue, the casual restaurant serves delicious pizzas, their much-acclaimed BBQ pizza. The place also features an impressive bar menu.
Joplin Avenue Coffee takes its name from the street it calls home. Apart from a range of refreshing java coffees and teas, the coffeehouse serves a variety of specialty drinks, smoothies and juices that lend a great start to the day. During the evenings, the place takes on a lighter mood and serves well-crafted cocktails such as Salted Caramel Brunette Martini and Chocolate Espresso Martini; highly recommended!
Styled like the typical Prohibition Era speakeasies, Caldone's After Dark oozes a sizzling '20s charm.

Caldone's also features a red phone booth which makes for a brilliant photo opportunity.
JB's Piano Bar, on Main Street, combines the two most-favored factors of a great night out - alcohol and live music. With a music line up that features several local and touring bands and artists and a bar program that includes a great range of beers, spirits and more, JB's can do no wrong!
