If you find yourself wandering downtown after hours in need of a drink and don’t care for the likes of the fancy environs that seem to surround you, then Rossi’s Liquors is the place for you. Yes, from the outside it looks like any other grubby, dank package store, but step inside and you’ll find an oddly warm and cozy, low-ceilinged wrap-around bar with the cheapest drink prices downtown. It’s a hard-drinking, highly diverse crowd, and an excellent jukebox. Combine the decent selection of craft beers, $3 Rolling Rock tall boys, and plenty of the hard stuff at Indiana prices and voila, a prevailing spirit of debauchery. Come ready to leave bleary-eyed and gratified.
