Patent Social Club - Uptown Waterloo (Cheapest Pitcher: $15)
Patent Social Club’s combination of booth style bar seating and vintage video games allows for customers to experience a booze fueled video game night with their friends, while providing the social experience of the uptown bar scene. The Erb street patio and house DJ additionally allows the patent experience to distinguish itself from a night spent digging through the basement to find the old N64 while killing Budweiser with the pals. What is potentially the most enticing element of Patent’s appeal is the deal on pitchers of Pabst Blue Ribbon, running you only $15 a pitcher. If you’re looking for a laid back atmosphere with the option for the night to turn into a romping dance party, then be sure to check out Patent Social Club on Erb and Regina.

Just steps away from Patent Social Club is the cozy Symposium Cafe. Symposium offers a wide variety of features throughout the week in addition to their standard comfort food-focused menu. Additionally, their raised patio at the back of the establishment allows for a great view of the Erb street stretch heading East from Regina.
