Stober's Bar

Stober's has been open since 1933 and received Lansing's first liquor license after prohibition. Stober's has an eclectic crowd and welcomes customers from all walks of life, even some on four legs!

The bar is magnificent featuring a large stained glass rendering of Merlin the Magician flanked by three fierce Griffins hand-carved out of Haitian mahogany! Stop in for some of the friendliest service around.

Taps 25

The beer selection is phenomenal and the location is great. The menu is mostly appetizers but they have the essentials.

Nuthouse Sports Grill

The Nuthouse Sports Grill came to be around the same time as the Lugnuts opening season. They've been serving a great menu with a wide selection of beers and other drinks. Pool tables and plenty of room for private parties. The Nuthouse is a great place to stop before or after a game in the summer.

Moriarty's Pub

Moriarty's is where you go if you want to play darts and hear some great live music. It's an eclectic atmosphere but well worth a stop. They have the usual bar menu and do it well.


The Exchange has live music every night of the week. From smooth jazz, smokin' blues, popular dance tunes, hilarious interaction and there is never a cover. The Exchange has a top shelf liquor supply as well as the finest wines. Their award winning cosmopolitan martini is a must-try.

There is a full menu of appetizers, sandwiches, wraps, and other goodies. The Terrace Lounge that overlooks the main bar is a great place to hang out on big comfy couches and chairs. It's also wonderful for private parties.

Beggar's Banquet

Beggar's Banquet is an East Lansing icon since 1973. The menu is diverse with something for just about everyone. The wine and beer lists are some of the best in East Lansing and the crowd is more diverse than other establishments in the area.
