Downtown Decatur - help me out hounds!

lynnlato | Oct 15, 201209:42 AM     17

I will be staying in Decatur for one Saturday evening in a few weeks and I'm looking for some good watering holes, gastropub-type restaurants and maybe some live music.

Some places I've put on my list are Leon's Full Service, Iberian Pig, Brick Store, #246, etc.

Here's the deal - I'll be traveling with a friend who isn't much of a food-lover. She's a pub grub kind of gal and domestic beer drinker (that sounds so condescending but it isn't intended that way). I am pretty much the exact opposite of that. I love small plates of charcuterie, offal, house-made pastas, locally-sourced fare, artisan cocktails, good wine, etc. I know that's a stretch to find something that would meet both our needs but surely it's not impossible, right? Extra points for a lively bar and/or atmosphere in general . She loves good burgers, sandwiches, salads, etc. and would be happy with any of those options.

After dinner we'd like to hang out at a pub with live music or pool tables or something fun.

Any recs are much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
