Top 25 College Bars in America

For many in college, finding the perfect watering hole is just as important as skipping those pesky 8am classes. So, The Daily Meal compiled a list of their 25 best college bars in America.

When determining the best college bars, they factored in these attributes:

  • Music
  • Outdoor area
  • Large selection of beer
  • Dance floor
  • Liquor
  • Cheap drinks
  • Shot specials
  • Drinking games
  • Distance to campus
  • …and other factors

Obviously, they never visited the Dixie Chicken in College Station.
