Mick' Office is a standard local bar. It is very crowded with college students on Thursday nights when they offer mugs of beer for $3.50 (and refills for $2.50 -- and these are pretty big mugs, so it's a good deal). Sometimes it can be a lot of fun to go there, other times it gets boring. But it's a good idea to give it a try.
I didn't get an opportunity to go, but I was told that the I-Beam club is 'the' nightclub to go for drinks and dancing.
