Funky bar adjoining the Heartland.
There's not much to the Red Line Tap: bar on the left, stage on the right, a couple ancient arcade games, the requisite pool table. That's part of its charm, though—whatever it's doing, it's not trying too hard. There are eight beers on tap, and many more by the bottle, and you can order food from the Heartland Cafe through a window. There's live music pretty much nightly, mostly rock and punk, and since 2008 a monthly metal showcase called Metal Up Your Tap. —Kevin Warwick
