Best known as the club where John Michael Montgomery wowed local folks before he got his big break in country music, Austin City has a reputation for regaling C&W fans with lots of great music. Boot-sporting patrons take to the dance floor to show off their practiced skills, while more adventurous cowboys mount the mechanical bull for a rambunctious ride. Karaoke events also find plenty of takers, and nightly drink specials keep the gears of sociability moving smoothly. (859-266-6891)

This cream-colored brick building is often the site of campus festivities. A cavernous interior of brick and rough pine, punctuated with beer memorabilia and UK artifacts, hints at the casual atmosphere, and a back deck, several bars, and sidewalk seating make sure everyone's got a place. On any given night, folks congregate for everything from live bands to comedy night, televised sports events, a few rounds of pool, tasty pub fare, and even pep rallies for the Horsemen (Lexington's arena football home team). A brief walk from campus guarantees Two Keys' enduring popularity, which is essentially legend anyway. (859-254-5000)

Natasha's airy environs incorporate a medley of international influences, from Balinese artifacts to African carvings, masks to textiles, basketry to rusted Moroccan lanterns. The effect is worldly but comfortable, an easy place to indulge in unusual dishes from central Europe to North Africa and beyond. Adding to the ambience is Natasha's slate of live music. Throughout the week, various groups play (usually at 8pm or 9pm) everything from classical to jazz, bluegrass to cabaret, rock to Latin. From time to time, theater performances are also presented.

Taking the place of past establishments that weren't so attentive to customer needs, Al's is an unpretentious dive bar that is making a name for itself with new owners, great food, and a sunny attitude. The no-frills place is ideal for enjoying frosty brews, delicious burgers, and other tasty fare crafted from local ingredients. Live music is also a weekly staple, and as the clientele grows, so does esteem for Al's. (859-252-9104, 859-608-9595)

If your style is more Wranglers than Range Rover, Cadillac Ranch is sure to guarantee a good time. Folks come in looking for fun and find it in line dancing, two-stepping, mechanical bull-riding, live bands, pool tournaments, and drink specials. The pace never slows down, and crowds of patrons make it easy to mingle, hang out, and just enjoy the time away from work and responsibility. The house band, Saddletramp, performs Wednesday to Saturday, and bikini-top bull riding takes place each Thursday. (859-335-8800)

Owned by and named after local musician Larry Redmon, this below-street-level club is constantly packed, and it's no wonder, given the energy and spirit of its namesake. Redmon rocks the crowd with his music, and regulars sing along, gathered around the stage and the bar, drinks in hand. Southern rock and country are the tunes of choice, and the clientele is a mix of college students and young professionals. Between sets, folks joke, chat, socialize, and mingle good-naturedly. Sitting down usually isn't much of an option; having a good time is. (859-252-5802)

Situated just off the Radisson's lobby, this upscale bar boasts slate floors, comfortable leather chairs, and an impressive, carved bar. Its large windows offer views of Triangle Park, and sidewalk seating provides an even better vantage point during warm evenings. Professionals find BBM an ideal place to sample a martini and a premium cigar while winding down from the day, and live music on weekends adds a note of relaxation. Sunday evenings are especially busy as folks look for one last chance to kick back before the week starts in again. (859-231-9000)
