Map It Out

Local drunks love downtown bar's convenience.


Ted Bevelacqua's pretty proud that he's never been tagged for a DUI. Then again, he only needs to walk across the street to get home from the daily Map Room Happy Hour. Since mid-September, the bar has catered to the "apartment crowd," says Bevelacqua, who lives in the Bingham Condominiums on West Ninth Street.

The club brags about its selection of 100 domestic and imported beers — from Miller Lite to Blue Moon from Belgium. For revelers thirsting for something harder, bartenders can mix Jack Daniel's & Coke or a Grey Goose martini. "The prices are reasonable for downtown," says Bevelacqua. "It's like a neighborhood bar in a concrete canyon."
