Leave the multiple-ingredient cocktails to the Strip. Here you’re going to be listening to live punk, rock, or blues bands while pounding PBR and shots of Ass Juice, a fruity, if not unappealing-looking mystery concoction that the bar has been selling for 2 decades. If the idea of Ass Juice isn’t your idea of a good time at a place whose motto is “You puke, you clean,” then try their other house specialty, the bacon martini, which Double Down claims to have invented. It’s like every other punk bar you’ve been to in other cities, with psychedelic murals, second hand furniture, weird videos playing on the TVs, and a very punk rock jukebox, but this one just happens to be the antithesis of the city surrounding it. The Double Down is open daily 24 hours.
