Seriously tho....don't stay in downtown LR without a parking lot with video surveillance.

I don't disagree, if I'm downtown, it's at the Capitol.

It's been a while since I lived there.... will be staying Saturday night. Where are any decent hotels with a bar? In or around LR ?      :razorback:

Any "full service" hotel in WEST Little Rock. Full serviced means they have a restaurant and bar or lounge. IF you are searching for more high energy nightlife in your bar then stay somewhere downtown by Rivermarket and go to it. Most hotel bars are subdued now. More akin to a "lounge" than a bar.

Embassy Suites off Chenal Parkway is where a lot of Hog Fans stay.  They have a bar and a awesome breakfast buffet with short order cooks.  The breakfast is free with the room just remember to get your tickets when you check in.  They also have a parking garage for a few dollars extra but it has video surveillance and you need a code to park there.  Most times I don't pay for it and just go to the front desk and tell them I forgot the code and they give it to you if you show them proof you're staying there.  The staff there is really nice and on top of things.  I suggest getting a corner suite as you can sleep up to four people with the fold-out couch and you get extra room to have people come up and hang out if you have a bigger party.

I'd recommend the Wyndham in NLR, just at the foot of the Main Street Bridge.  Has a very nice bar, a Benihana's, easier parking and much less traffic than the LR hotels.

Wyndham, Benihana's and Riverfront Steak House (and bar).  Everything you need and want right here.

Also has the Riverfront Steakhouse.  Very likely the best steakhouse in Arkansas.

Grubbs in Rogers has a great bar area with several TVs. Some other good bar area options are Mojitos, Chili's, Logan's Steakhouse, Longhorn Steakhouse.  I also know PF Changs and Bonefish Grill have bar areas with several TVs but I've never watched games there. 

After reading your post again I see I missed the sports bar part.  With that paramater I would either suggest Buffalo Wild Wings or Grubbs.

Longhorn steakhouse is actually less noisy than most. And if you order Flo's filet you will have a great steak to eat while you are watch.  The bacon mac and cheese also is excellent.

Bariola's isn't necessarily a sports bar but does have a bar and super good pizza - mmmm dip it in ranch man I'm hungry already.

If you are set on a sports bar JJ's for Burgers or BWW for so-so wings.  Bentonville is a stones throw away so Gusanos or Beef o Bradys would be other choices as well.

Drive a few exits north to Bella Vista. Turn left at the DQ. New JJ's  in strip center and Gusano's as well. You can walk back and forth to both with ample parking. Beer specials at both all day. Great folks at both. Beer on a budget! Hard to beat. However, traffic is a biatch due to crafts fair folks. Enjoy and Go Hogs!

There are parking passes available on stubhub FYI if anyone plans to tailgate.

There are even some in their equivalent of the pit.

I am considering buying one if I have a big enough group. It would be awfully nice to see some red tents right out in front of the stadium.

Are Cracker Barrels individual entities throughout the country or uniform in their offerings, like McDonalds?  If they have unique charm, then maybe it's a good place to eat in Starkville, but if not...   :puke:

I haven't lived there in a while, but first off, there isn't much to Starkville when school is not in, and except for the population increase there really isn't much more going on when school is in. Second off Columbus is only 20 miles away further on US 82 and a great local restaurant is Profit's Porch. Its kind of a hole in the wall place, but the food is good. I suspect that the locals would really know what are the best great places just because there will be so few of them around. My .02 anyway...

I lived there for 10 years (92-02) and have to say this every year.  It's not an arm pit.  It's a great small college town.  Their game day atmosphere is better than Fayetteville and Little Rock.  Great tailgating all around the stadium and the fans are about as friendly and unpretentious as any you will meet in the SEC.  Most T-shirt fans pull for OM so the MSU fans are the real deal with a true connection to their school and their love of the school and program shows. 

The ambiance of Oxford is overrated unless you like hanging out with a bunch of pretentious pri***.

People that downgrade the town and the school are basically ignorant.  The only reason I'm not living there now is because NWA is da bomb and I can make 2x's as much here as I did there, but if I suddenly couldn't live in Benco any more I would move back to Starkville in a heartbeat.

Cotton District is great.  Fun fact it was the first new urbanism development in the world.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cotton_District.  Drive around there and you will see what is now trendy in other towns.  What is going on in downtown Bentonville mirrors what they did in the Cotton District 30 years ago.

Besides places already mentioned the Cotton District Grill, Harvey's and Oby's are all also very good.  The hardest thing about going to a game in Starkville is getting there especially from NWA, but the drive isn't as bad as it used to be and it's basically 4 lane highway the entire time.

I ate at Stromboli's in Starkville last night, believe it or not.  Food is good but it's an extremely small place; seats maybe 30-40 people.  Mugshots is fine for a college bar type atmosphere.  There are several other good places; most are downtown and away from the campus. 

Our oldest daughter is a senior at MSU so we are there pretty often.
