Moving along is the ol’ favourite that has been snapping up the awards, Shady Pines. The only sign this little bar holds is a gathering of people smoking in an alleyway and white sheets covering the windows. Once the door is opened, it’s like stepping onto a Texas movie set with animal heads peering from the walls, mismatching furniture, beer, bowls of raw peanuts and loud bursts of laughter – and really all this place needs is a mechanical bull. Standing behind the long wooden bar table are some serious bartenders with the moustaches to match the decor. Extensive beer list and its quirkiness is worth checking out.
