Marco Polo Dive Bar is a little more upscale than its name belies. Inside, the bar has more of a club-like feel as opposed to a dive bar with customary staid cigarette and alcohol odor. This works in the bar's favor because it draws a lot of traffic during the week for theme nights of every type. On Tuesdays, guests can have 2USD Heineken, Ginger Whiskey and/or Spiced Rum for their popular 'In-Crowd' night or a slew of different DJs on the weekends. For more information on events, check out their Facebook page.
Right in the heart of central El Paso, the Loft Bar is a nondescript place where drinks specials are the norm and DJs bring the sound. Like most other dive bars in town, this one has incredible drink prices as well. Throughout the week, most call drinks are just 3USD and domestic beer bottles are only 2USD. The crowd is a diverse one, from business folk to young college students. After you leave the Loft, if its still early, the Rib Hut next door has great post-bar grub.
The guys and gals at The Palomino Tavern claim to have the baddest burgers and stiffest drinks this side of the Rio Grande. The chef behind the burgers is Sarah Khosravani and her creations are amazingly simple. Try the Mushroom Burger with their signature Pony sauce and Bleu Cheese or the Guacamole Queso Burger with lettuce, tomato and onion. For a burlier proportion, try the Chuco Burger, a messy monster that has ham, Pico de Gallo, toreados (roasted jalapeños), crispy onions, cheese and a fried egg. In addition to great burgers, Palomino has tons of craft beers in its fridge.
