The Grawood and the T-Room
Both watering holes are Dalhousie hangouts, and both accept non-Dal students who have a valid student ID and proof of age. The Grawood sports a restaurant, but the T-Room doesn't (you can bring in snacks if you're hungry). Renowned T-Room trivia starts September 11---I hear there are chocolate bars and die-hard fans.
The Grawood: Student Union Building, 6136 University Avenue. The T-Room: J-Building, Sexton Campus, 1360 Barrington Street
This King's College staple just celebrated its 30th birthday and is rocking the new age bracket with Garrison on draught, booked DJs and live entertainment. Just one catch: If you're not a King's student, you must go with one to enjoy the Wardroom's perks.

Vinnie's Pub & Lounge
The Mount's student bar added a restaurant last year, so you can get your eats, drinks and music in one spot. If you're not a Mount student, you can get in by bringing a student ID and proof of age.
