Sky Bar Cafe
Holding the first spot on AL.com's "25 bars who bought the most liquor in 2017," Sky Bar Cafe is famous for their live bands, karaoke, drink specials and their infamous Boom-Boom Room.
Here, the specials Tuesday-Friday keep the bar pretty packed but favorites include Tuesday's $1 wells and Friday's $3.25 daiquiris.
One of Auburn's most well-known bars, Quixotes, features great drink specials and arguably some of the best bar food in town.
"Most people order wells because they're the cheapest or any domestic beer," said bartender Anna Barksdale. "Bushwhackers are also really popular right now."
Barksdale said bar goers mainly order a mixed drink they love or specials if they come early enough. Lately, however, customer's have been ordering a shot deemed the Mazzaro.
