Several selections to choose from whether restaurant, club or hangout spot. 17th closed to traffic on weekends after 8pm. Little but rowdy at times. Use an Uber. Better for parking situation. Close to the Food Park if on a budget. Nice addition. To MFE.

I like 17th St night clubs. There are many places to grab a bottle of beer or wine. However, majority of people are Hispanics and if you do not know their language, it may be a bit boring. Try to drop by with a Hispanic...More
