War Eagle Supper Club, Auburn University, AL

Locals of all ages flock to this bar on the outskirts of Auburn, often hanging around till dawn. (The staff will drive you home for free in their shuttle van.) The building dates back to 1937 and has always been a bar of some sort. The existing War Eagle Supper Club opened in 1954 and, ironically, does not serve supper. It does serve a low-key vibe, with fantastic regional bands, drinks in an old school bus out back, and a sense of tradition. “We have been here for so long, kids come in and tell me that their grandparents drank here,” laughs owner John Brandt. “We have tons of alum visit, and I even have second-generation employees.”
