Deep in the heart of Midtown — or, as some call it, Little Dallas — Front Porch Pub is perfect walking distance for condo-dwellers and those in the surrounding neighborhoods. Living up to its name, the bar has a massive front porch that may have a larger footprint than the drinkery's interior. Heavy wood abounds, be it the solid bar top or the hearty tables and chairs filling the space. Big-screen TVs are scattered around the room, and pool and darts offer something to do. Customers will need some activities, after all, if they attempt to work through all fortysomething beers on tap. Weeknights, Front Porch is a calm spot to catch up with friends or wind down from the workday. Weekends, though, the crowd gets crazier and the bustle increases — like most of Midtown. Steak nights on Tuesdays and Thursdays keep the bar busy, and even with the full mouths, it's still loud as hell inside and out.
