So you’re out for a bachelor or bachelorette party and the person that really loved Greek life in college suggests going to Dirty Sixth. Before anyone else picks a bar, direct the group to The Blind Pig. It’s just as crazy and college-y as the rest of the bars on the strip, but it also has a huge rooftop patio and hosts nightly live music. You’ll have to wade through the overcrowded bar on the first floor, but once you pass by all the UT students, there are three additional bars to choose from upstairs, which will help make your visit to Dirty Sixth a little less terrible.
