Acme Feed & Seed
Despite its 22,000 square feet of space, this bar, restaurant, and live music venue—formerly an old feed and seed store—where Broadway meets the river is always packed with patrons, no matter the day of week or the occasion. Diners like to order at Acme's floor-level counter and chow down on hot chicken sandwiches, while music lovers dig seeing the various acts that take the honky tonk's stage several nights a week and sports fans camp out in the second floor lounge with seating and TVs aplenty. Those looking for a quieter scene might retreat to the rooftop for some fresh air—not to mention, incomparable views—while tourists strolling along lower Broad are likely to be lured into Acme's Farm Store by its variety of artisan-made jewelry, seasoning, sauces, and handmade pottery on display. The great uniter is Acme's drink menu—with a lengthy list of bottled and draft beers and an eclectic mix of cocktails (try the Son of a Gun, with rye, cherry Heering, Aperol, lemon, and a smoky-chocolatey hit of molé bitter), there's something for everyone.
