863 is a popular local bar and grill in Aggieville. A restaurant during the day and a bar at night, 1863 caters to the Manhattan community’s food and nightlife needs. The restaurant serves as a classic bar food destination with the regular favorites from burgers to buffalo wings. With nothing out of the ordinary for their menu they make sure to do what they do well. 1863 does take on more of its own identity at night though. With all kinds of drinks and shots, they keep it interesting with things like what is known as a LAX Bomb (consisting of a shot you light on fire, then inhale the alcohol, and then drink the shot) and the shot ski (literally a ski that holds three shots, ensuring that three people take the shot at the same time). One downside to the restaurant is that they only serve dinner.
1863 has somewhat of a dark interior with mostly natural wood furnishings. It takes on a bit of an aged feel as you can tell the place has seen some traffic. The interior as a whole is simple and hosts a few local artists pairings to keep it interesting. 1863 is one large open room with a large bar in the back right and a small patio out front. Unfortunately 1863 has yet to produce a website, but you can check them out on their Facebook page.
