The first thing you'll see when approaching The Usual is its outdoor patio, which is as relaxed as the Heights bar's clean, dimly lit interior. Suds connoisseurs may be a bit surprised at the variety of beers on tap, and the price is right, too - especially during The Usual's weekday happy hours (6-10 p.m. Mondays; 4-10 p.m. the rest of the week). Tuesday is steak night with $1 Lone Stars, adventurous customers take the stage on karaoke Thursdays and DJ Joy de la O opens up the "Joy Factory" Saturdays. Occasional live music and pinball, darts and pool in the back room round out The Usual's attractions.

Laid back kind of place. Small & cozy. Good live music. Huge outdoor patio. Seems like they have drink specials almost every day. Karaoke. Only bad thing is the parking is limited - small lot, plus side streets parking with no real shoulders, so it's kind of hard parking on the streets.
This place has Saturday night KARAOKE!! Great beer selections and prices that won't break your pocket book. Really good feel to this spot. Nice patio with picnic benches. Washington ave best kept secret!!
