Savannah offers many choices for enjoying an evening out on the town. Here’s a quick round up of some local favourites that you’ll be sure to find refreshing on a hot summer’s eve in Savannah.
Churchill’s Pub & Restaurant is an authentic British pub serving up food and fun every night of the week. The showcase piece of Churchill’s Pub is the gorgeous mahogany bar along with other furnishings that were imported from Britain. And actually, the owners are from Britain as well. As well as inside, visitors can choose to sit outside on the terrace and enjoy the views of Savannah’s historical district. Enjoy an order of fish and chips or bangers and mash, along with a good selection of draught and bottled beer. Or if cocktails are more your thing, try the Georgia Peach Tea or Bob’s Blue Boo Yah!
In keeping with the overseas theme, Murphy’s Law Irish Pub is hailed as being ‘Savannah’s most authentic Irish pub.’ Providing weekly live entertainment and great pub grub (try the Pork Pie and Chips), Thursday nights are always crowded thanks to the ‘Drink Till U Drown’ special offering all-you-can-drink Pabst Blue Ribbon beer for $5.00. Murphy’s Law also offers a weekday Happy Hour from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Planters Tavern is located in the cellar at the Olde Pink House restaurant, built in 1771.

Venus De Milo is a funky wine bar located near Savannah’s City Market. It also features a beautiful mahogany bar along with a selection of antique furniture.
