Formerly the Akron Scorcher's and the Tap House, the sport-and-rock-themed Ripper Owens' Tap House now has the former Judas Priest singer as a partner. When he's not on the road, he makes appearances.
If the complimentary wi-fi connection isn't enough to keep you busy on the rare nights that the Riverfront Coffee Mill doesn't host a live act, the coffeehouse also offers an impressive selection of board games. Yahtzee, anyone?
The tiny bar formerly known as Benny's now has two-dozen bar stools and has a classy lounge vibe.
This back room of this semi-subterranean bar is a game room, and the front hosts an older crowd who appreciates occasional live bands that play really sincere classic rock covers. Monday nights, you'll not find a better $3 steak in Akron.
