This Ginger Man location in an old two-story house really takes the "public house" origins of the word seriously. The pub offers up picnic style seating in the beer garden out back, an upstairs lounge with its own bar, and a balcony with still more picnic tables under a covered patio. This Ginger Man has been serving patrons in the Uptown area for nearly 20 years. Today, the bar has more than 80 draft beers to choose from, with another 100 or so bottled beer offerings. Downstairs, there's a spacious dog-friendly patio, but Ginger Man tends to fill up quickly -- inside and out -- during happy hours, as do all the nearby parking spots. If you like a good ghost story, just ask the bar staff or one of the servers, as there are rumors the old house-turned-pub is haunted.
