The southwestern-themed bar and grill calls itself the “Texas Margarita Grill”—though it should take a cue from the Lone Star State and adopt the slogan, “Bar Abilene is for Lovers.” It’s the kind of place that gets wild after 9 p.m. on the weekends—the DJ warms up, the dance floor gets packed with tequila-shooting partiers (the place offers just about every tequila imaginable), and suddenly, you’ve met the love of your life (or some alternate duration). If you are offended by PDA, head to Stella’s down the street.
Features: Dance Club, DJ, Happy Hour, Late-night Eats
Happy Hour: M-F, 4-6 p.m.; $3 tap beers and $1 off margaritas, half-priced apps. Daily specials from 9 p.m.-close.
