I have always liked Elixir Bar on South Clinton. The crowd was always fun, the bartenders were good, and most importantly the drinks were always cheap. I once saw two patrons boost a man in a wheelchair up the stairs just so he could get a drink. Unfortunately Elixir is closing at the end of October, leaving only a few more days of partying before the bar closes its doors for good.
The silver lining to this is that closing day for Elixir is Halloween night. With a bar that needs to get rid of the rest of its stock in the next three days, it’s expected to be a blowout. I was talking to the bartender a few days ago and he said that Halloween night everything is going to be under $2. If you’re looking for a cheap place to party Halloween night, Elixir is the place to go.
