7. The Project Lounge, Biloxi, MS

This is one of Biloxi’s best kept secrets in the nightlife industry. You’ll want to experience their full suite of savory food options that will change the way you think about bar food.

8. Harold & Lillian’s, Bay St. Louis, MS

Their customers agree there’s no other local bar quite like this one. Walk in and you’ll feel like family in a warm, inviting atmosphere you’ll want to visit again and again. Karaoke, happy hour, pool tables, dart board, and live music are reason enough to stop in, but you’ll love the service just as much.

9. Nick’s Ice House, Hattiesburg, MS

Unless you’re looking for it, you might just miss it. This humble little neighborhood bar is serving up the coldest beer in town. It’s a quirky place, to say the least, and you’ve never experienced anything like it. Bar stools have taken the form of toilets (but don’t use them!), lights remain dim, and drinks are restricted to beer and water only, but this bar has generated a loyal local following that wouldn’t have it any other way.

10. McB’s Bar and Grill, Ridgeland, MS

Hot burger and cold beer take center stage at McB’s. Locals can’t get enough of this place because of its old-fashioned atmosphere and service. If you’re not much into the drinking scene, you’ll still want to pay them a visit—they’ve got the best lunch in town.
