Best Spot for Avoiding the Festival Crowds

MugShots

Located across from the ARCH and on the backside of Dirty Sixth, this dive bar might not look like much from the outside, but we think you'll find respite in its cool brick interior – and cheap drinks, too. The decor includes mug shots, of course, and also some tasteful photo booth nudes (look closely). If you're lucky, you might find yourself talking to one of the friendly bartenders about Orson Welles.
