TILT just opened in 2008 but has quickly earned a loyal after-work crowd. It doesn’t look impressive from the street (it’s a long, narrow space with a limited “storefront”), but the polished wood floors, chandeliers, and a bar that seems to stretch for miles give it an upscale appeal. The happy-hour specials are definitely at dive-bar prices: $2 domestics on Monday, $1 draught beers on Tuesday, $3 imports on Thursday, and $1 premium drafts and $1 SoCo and lime on Fridays. Wednesday is Pub Poker night. Registration starts at 6:30 P.M., with games at 7 and 9:30 P.M. Buy a shot and get 500 extra chips.
