    Top of the Stairs: A classic student dive

    by mikelisaanna Written Nov 12, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Top of the Stairs is a Blacksburg/Virginia Tech institution. It is a dive bar located at the edge of the Virginia Tech campus on College Avenue. The bar is located on the second floor of the building (hence the name) and is usually packed with students on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Don't expect anything fancy - this is a place to hang out, relax, drink, and have a good time. They do have food - their specialty is barbecue. There is also live music a few times a week.

    Main Street, Downtown blacksburg: Hokie Party!

    by HotSpotJ Written Nov 5, 2005

    Calm Main Street

    Some of the wildest parties I have seen in Blacksburg have actually been held by the football fans in the center of Main Street downtown. After big college footballe wins especially the night games, when the bars close the fans pour into the streets to celebrate. I was there for the BC win in 99, the LSU and Mia wins of late, and I'll telll you it has been very fun, almost like Mardi Gras, just Hokie style!

    Dress Code: Hokie colors!

    Sharkey's: A VA Tech favorite

    by HotSpotJ Written Oct 27, 2005

    Sharkey's in downtown Blacksburg

    Now, this actual building has went through some changes, and myself, having spent time at Virginia Tech in the mid 90's, remembers the old spots here called Arnolds, then Prestons, and then Woody's, but now sharkys, also a longtime Blacksburg spot that was next door, moved into here in 2005. Sharkey's has a decent menu, full of wings , ribs, burgers and creative sandwiches, as well as a full bar. This place is a regular hangout for students and visitors alike. The only thing it is missing, what the places before it had, is a nice dance floor and event venue. I dare you to take the Sharkey's 9-1-1 wing Challenge if you like hot wings!

    Dress Code: Dress casual. No one here will ever be caught in a 3-piece suit.. its a college town!

    Hokie House

    A personal favorite of mine, Hokie House has a downstairs dining area which serves a decent burgers and fries menu as well as some very good drinks, the upstairs ahs pool tables and air hockey, its a great place to stop on your way to the game or after the game.... when you walk upsatirs there are names of some of the favorite cocktails served at Hokie House, I have the proud distinction of having drank every one of them.... all in the same night! ( don't remember much of that night, needless to say!)
