Best Bar in Lawrence: The Nest on 9th vs Red Lyon Tavern

Lets keep it going

The Nest on 9th

A tavern with ‘tude, the Lyon is something like a warm euro-style pub, but more spacious, better lit and without any dank wood work. Always clean and lined out with amenities like board games, darts, pool, and free popcorn. If you’re getting slow service, take time to take in the sign above the bar: “Please don’t tell anyone about the Lyon. We have no time for strangers. Remember it’s your seat.

The Nest on 9th

The Nest on Ninth, our rooftop terrace, boasts the best views in the region and offers some of the best al fresco dining in Lawrence. Sample various offerings from an abbreviated Bird Dog Bar menu as you watch the sun set over KU’s campus and the Kaw River Valley. Enjoy beer, cocktails and some exceptional wine selections
