My 21st birthday is coming up in October and I’m so excited. Many bars and clubs in my area do not allow people in who are under the age of 21. Therefore, I have not been able to really experience the nightlife of my city. Once I turn 21, I will be able to go out and grab a drink with friends or buy a bottle of wine, just because. And a little secret about me is that I LOVE to dance, sober or not. So, I cannot wait to have the freedom to go out dancing with my girls. In lieu of my upcoming birthday, I partnered with Grand Rapids Party Buses to create a post all about bar hopping right here in my city, Grand Rapids.
Grand Rapids Bar Hopping
Bar hopping in Grand Rapids is one of the best ways to get to know the city and simultaneously have fun with friends. However, anybody with a group of friends in this modern day and age knows the complications in setting up a get together. There’s so much to consider whether it’s school, work schedules, or prior commitments. However, we’re here with suggestions for some fantastic bars to look into adding to your bar hopping itinerary as well as an option that will make it easy to get your group of friends to commit to a night of fun.
For those who value cocktail diversity and creativity, you’re definitely going to love this spot! It’s a smaller venue with seating for about twenty, so it’s perfect for trying out a drink or two and heading on to your next destination. The bartenders are known to be extremely efficient and knowledgeable, so count on a five star drink whenever you decide to head here. Try the Pisco Sour!
Located in Midtown, Buffalo Traders Lounge offers a fun retro vibe! It has a 70’s look and feel that’s really comforting. You’re sure to enjoy their sliding scale Happy Hour that runs Monday through Thursday where drinks start at a cheap five dollars and then increase in price by one dollar each hour. It’s a cool experience being quizzed by their bartenders to get a completely custom drink!
This is a new addition to the scene in Grand Rapids, and they offer reservations online. It focuses on providing comfort food and drinks in an upscale gastropub environment. The poutine fries and tuna poke are both a big hit as well as the milk pot flight if you’re staying for dessert. Those who enjoy craft beer will take delight in the selection of IPAs on draft!
Reserving professional transportation such as a limousine or party bus in Grand Rapids is the best way to get everyone on board…literally! While the knee jerk reaction is to order an Uber or Lyft, you’ll benefit much more with the addition of Grand Rapids Party Buses. Splitting the cost among the group keeps it affordable for everyone involved, and you’ll know you’re partying to the best of your ability when surrounded with quality features. Not only is it a safe way to get everybody involved, but it also provides an unforgettable experience.
