The Fox and Hounds feels like a bar your gay grandfather might frequent. It's brightly lit, with old paintings of fox hunts and booths that bring a Shari's to mind. These are by no means bad attributes. The Fox and Hounds has carved out a vital niche in the heart of Old Town's thumping nightclubbery: It is sanctuary, vital respite, needed calm. The drinks are legendary in their strength, the regulars are friendly, and the weekend brunch is delicious and generally wait-free. Plus there's pool. DIRK VANDERHART
A sweet, friendly, old bar that's partial to the gay folk and just recieved a substantial makeover after many years of apparent neglect. Sunday brunch is very popular here, as are after-work drinks. They mix a stiff drink and the bar food is reputedly pretty good. Pool and darts are also available in a back room.
