Jay's Saloon before, but I guarantee you've seen it a thousand times. The unassuming location on 10th Street between N. Highland and N. Hudson doesn't look like most bars in the area... and that's because it isn't.
You won't find a popped collar or a herd of bros looking for Jaeger bombs. If that's your style, you're a few blocks off.
But if you're looking for good service, good food, and cheap beer (or wine, or mixed drinks), then you're in the right place.
Either step inside and mosey up to the bar, or enjoy the warm weather on their outdoor patio. The staff is friendly and the patrons are true locals. Jay's bills itself as "One of Arlington's last true dive bars..." and nothing could be truer.
Order anything from the menu. Honestly. It's all good. Arlington Nightlife enjoys the burger or the chicken salad. And everything tastes better with a pitcher of your favorite draft beer.
It's a great way to kick off a Saturday, watch a game, or play pool. Jay's opens at noon today, so you've got a few minutes before the doors open. Throw on some sweat pants and have a drink.
