With so many amazing options for casual dining and drinks in Flint & Genesee, it’s hard to narrow down where to go for a night out. Anywhere you choose will be a great backdrop for a wonderful night, but sometimes it is the discovery of a new place that can make for a memorable time. As you plan for an evening of fun, here are some options you might consider.

Foutch’s Pub & Grill in Flint Township has become a great place to settle in for game day with over 28 TVs where you can catch all the action. If you prefer, you can hit the pool table or challenge someone to a game of darts. Their menu features all-American fare including poppers, wings, cheesy bread, and more. For the main course, you can order a pizza, burger, or maybe a sandwich as you spend some time cheering on your favorite teams.

Scooters Bar & Grill in Flint is your place if you’re a motorcycle aficionado. Every Wednesday from April through mid-October there is a bike night where folks bring out their prized possessions to show them off. If you’re more of a car person, they have you covered as well with car shows that start in June for a summer of cruising fun. If neither is your thing, they still have you covered with weekly events like trivia nights and live music.

The Burger Bar & Tap in Flint is a great stop for burger and beer lovers. With a wide selection of domestic beers and a long list of specialty drinks, they have exactly what you’ll need to wash down one of their delicious burgers. With burgers ranging from the Triple Cheeseburger to the Hangover burger, and even a Petoskey Cherry Burger, this is a great opportunity to experiment a little with flavor. While you’re there you can take part in a trivia night, karaoke night, and even an open mic night on Fridays.

Another spot known for its beer is The Red Baron Tap Room & Brewpub, which, while it carries domestic beers, really shines with how many specialty drinks it offers. Ales, IPAs, wheat beers, stouts, porters, ciders, bocks, and more are sure to give you plenty of opportunities to slowly make your way across the globe one drink at a time. The Red Baron also offers plenty of liquors for mixed drinks if that’s your preference. If you are hungry, you can order one of over a dozen sandwiches, a burger, some fish and chips, or maybe just an appetizer.

Kew’s Korner Pub in Flint has become a beloved local bar that features karaoke on Fridays and Saturdays, has regular happy hour drink specials, and special events. The bar often features RuPaul’s Drag Race watch parties, as well as special events like an upcoming Drag Queen Bingo.

Burton’s Puzzler’s Pub is a favorite stop around the area because of its fun atmosphere and friendly staff. With a broad menu featuring favorites like burgers, sandwiches, seafood, and plenty of appetizers, you won’t go hungry as you settle in for professional sports games, some pool, or a night of line dancing. The bar is well stocked, and you’ll be hard-pressed not to have a good time.

Duffy’s Bar of Flushing is a hometown bar that offers a laid-back night of drinks and conversation. This is the sort of place where you go to unwind and catch up with familiar faces with a cold drink in hand.

Billy’s Pine Run Inn in Clio is another local bar that is a great place to go to relax. At Billy’s, you’ll find live music, cold beer, and good food. The atmosphere is cozy, and they offer comfort food to go with any drink that will hit the spot as you settle in for one of their live music nights.

Finally, you should check out the Soothing Tunes Room if you love jazz and blues music. Soothing Tunes offers a dance floor, a stage that brings the music down to the crowd, and a beautiful space to kick back for the evening with the bar in the center of everything. With frequent special events and live music, this is a great place to visit for something new and an amazing night out.
