What makes a great bar? Rather, what makes a great postgrad bar? Great prices, good enough food (or no food at all), great happy hour, a classy decor or a place that looks like the dive bar to end all dive bars. People’s tastes in bars vary in their 20s and your preferences change from night to night. Do I want to throw a blazer on and order something that costs more than three dollars? Or do I want to put on a t-shirt and jeans and blackout like it’s freshman year?
