Best Vista Bar: Vista Union

By Grace Farrar

Vista Union is a hidden gem in the heart of the Vista, with an extensive menu and great deals. The best part? There’s something new to try every night of the week!

Sip on $3 specialty mules every Monday, and on Tuesdays treat yourself to $2 tacos and margaritas and then try your hand at Tipsy Bingo at 8 p.m. Kick back on Wednesdays with $3 Bud Light drafts and vodka drinks. Indulge in happy hour on Thursdays — all day long. If you’re still hanging in there by the weekend, stop by on a Sunday and enjoy 50% off food and 20% off drinks.

Aside from the specials, their menu is packed with good eats, from the mac and cheese burger to the sriracha honey bacon BLT. I recommend the Irish nachos: curly fries topped with cheese, bacon, pico de gallo and more.

Looking to host a private event? Vista Union is Columbia’s biggest bar available to rent, and it’s a go-to for fraternity and sorority functions.

No matter which night of the week you go, Vista Union won’t disappoint.
