Muddy Waters

  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining, Smoking
Although bathed in color-changing neon lights, Muddy Waters' interior is still so dim you can hardly find your way to the pool tables. With a cross section of various ages and races, Muddy Waters caters to crowds of working-class people rushing to get in on the bar’s cheap weekly specials, including Monday’s dollar drafts and Tuesday’s $2 wells. When slow, the bar is a watering hole for weary blue-collar workers. When busy, the bar is packed with college students dancing to DJs or watching solo-acoustic sets on the bar’s small, wooden stage. Outside, a ground-level smoking area is sectioned off by an iron gate, and can seat a handful of people who watch cars pass on Live Oak Street.
