Brockport Nightlife Rundown

By Aidan Verbeke

Barber’s Grill and Tap Room

22 Main Street

Brockport, NY 14420

585-637-2989

Overview: Barber’s is your best bet for a night to hang out, drink some beer and eat some wings. While it is usually not known for being the final stop for students on the weekend, it is a favorite for alumni and locals. There are 36 beers on tap are served in their signature mason jars. Free popcorn is handed out in empty beer pitchers.

Night Not to Miss: Monday. Wing Night at Barber’s is something every student should experience at least once their Brockport careers. Traditional wings are $.50 from 8 p.m. until Midnight with 15 sauces to choose from. If you don’t mind walking out smelling like the fryer, Wing Night is can’t miss.

Don’t Just Take it from Me: “When I come back to Brockport, I usually go to Barber’s more often than I did when I was a student. It just has more of an alumni vibe now and sometimes that’s better than the college crowd.” Amelia Brueckman, Brockport Class of 2016.  

C & S Saloon  

34 Main Street

Brockport, NY 14420

585- 637-3233

Overview: Probably the most “dive” bar on our list, C & S is another hangout where wings and beer reign supreme. Pool, darts and Big Buck Hunter are also features that enhance the drinking experience. There are picnic-type tables as well as booths that can comfortably fit a large amount of patrons.

Night Not to Miss: Thursday. From 11 until 1 a.m. on Thursdays, C & S will be bumping. Customers can enjoy $1.50 mixed drinks and tap beers. Thursdays are a staple for students and is when C & S solidifies itself in Brockport.

Don’t Just Take it from Me: Thursdays are my favorite night to go out in Brockport and it Is because of C & S. It’s cheap and fun and the music is awesome.” Bridgette Schaal, Class of 2018.

 

Fazool’s Casual Italian Kitchen

51 Market St

Brockport, NY 14420   

585-431-3072

Overview: Yes, you read that correctly. Former Brockport students have been shocked at find out that Fazool’s threw its hat in the late-night ring this year. Once known for its chicken parm, Fazool’s is now one of the main destinations for students to go until last call. The main room features plenty of televisions and sports memorabilia that will catch your eye. There is a patio for when the weather is nice that provides more room for drinking and catching up.

Night Not to Miss: Friday. Landing the coveted Friday spot is quite an impressive feat for this new hotspot. The live DJ and embarrassing karaoke are the biggest sellers for students. There is often a decent line outside around midnight, but the wait is worth it. $6.00 pitchers of beer await you on the inside.

Don’t Just Take it from Me: “Fazool’s came out of nowhere this year but it is definitely my favorite place to go. The staff is awesome and the atmosphere is great.” Connor Hutchins, Class of 2020.

The Red Jug Pub

38 Merchant St

Brockport, NY 14420

585-431-3403

Overview: Though to most it may seem like “The Jug” has been around forever, it has only been in Brockport since the Fall Semester of 2016. Everything you can look for in a college bar, Red Jug has a large half-circle bar with plenty of beers on tap and bartenders to serve them. The weekends get crowded and loud and anyone who likes to dance and sing can find comfort at Red Jug.

Night Not to Miss: Tuesday. It is well-known that Red Jug is a weekend hotspot but Tuesdays are perhaps the most bang for your buck. $1.00 drafts on most beers attracts a large crowd of students looking for a midweek night out.

Don’t Just Take it from Me: “Red Jug came around when Brockport needed a new, fun bar and it has not disappointed. Every night of the week can be a good time.” Zac, Sikich, Class of 2018.
