3166 W. Cary St.
Second Place: Godfreys Restaurant and Nightclub
Third Place: Nu Restaurant & Lounge
Babe's is all about having fun. (C'mon, they once held a flannel Friday event with a best lumberjack contest.) Drag shows, karaoke and a killer patio keep folks of every orientation coming back to this Carytown staple. Whether you're snagging a quick Sunday cocktail or intend to pull an all-nighter, Babe's will keep you fueled for a solid, good time. Did we mention it holds one of the best dance parties in town Saturday nights? DJs spin everything from flashback hits of the '80s and '90s to the latest club bangers. Bartenders are swift and drinks are cheap. In recent years, more craft beer selections have been added. Godfreys Restaurant and Nightclub still thrills the stockings off West End moms every weekend with epic drag shows. We'll have to pour one out for Nu Nightclub. While it garnered plenty of votes, its last dance was in February. It's now the music venue Broadberry.
