True to name, Trailer Park is a trailer park-themed bar, which is actually better than it sounds. The space is jam-packed with a dizzying amount of Christmas lights, random trinkets, and other paraphernalia, which can feel either like being on an episode of Hoarders or like a place to have a great time. This is probably not the place to plan a meeting of any professional nature, but it’s a great place to kick back with a few friends over some beers and tater tots.
