Pinpoint is definitely one of the most unique bars in the whole state of Arkansas.

Are you in the mood for music, laughter, and conversation? You’ll always find a fun crowd gathered at Papa’s, which has been voted the best pizza and tavern in Fort Smith. In addition to its fun vibe, this place is also known for unique bar rules like the “cell-free zone” on the bar’s east side and the “Jeopardy rule,” which says you can’t play the jukebox while Jeopardy is on because it must be watched in silence.
You’ll want to think “bigg” and sing real loud at this popular dueling piano bar in Little Rock. Ernie Biggs is known for awesome weekly specials, like Sunday fun-day where domestic bottles are only $2, and Hospitality night on Tuesdays where those in the service industry can enjoy half price specials.
Inspired by colorful Mexican cantinas, you’ll find good tacos AND good drinks at this unique bar in Little Rock. One thing that makes the Fold stand out is that they welcome pets on their patio. So, grab your four-legged friend and head on over to enjoy happy hour.
If you’re into fine spirits and cigars, then you definitely need to check out One Eyed Jack’s Cigar Lounge in Bentonville. You’ll find top-shelf liquors from around the world, not to mention a selection of fine cigars.
