Sherlock's Baker St. Pub & Grill

If the name didn't clue you in to this bar and grill's all-things-British theme, you'll figure out the second you open the door and see the full-size red telephone booth and the walls, which are bedecked with rugby and cricket memorabilia mixed in with the typical pub design. Because Sherlock's boasts far more easily re-arranged seating than your average pub, it's a great place for large groups-and there's also a large patio. The pub's located in a strip mall in smoke-friendly Addison, so be prepared for a haze. The place can get pretty packed during happy hours and weekends-what with two bars, a full dining menu, nightly live music and popular drink specials like $2 wells and domestic drafts from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and all day on Sunday.
