If you are looking for something to do in South Bend, you are not alone! Here are some ideas to toss around with your friends or new roommates.
For the bar going crowd, the Backer is a local staple. If you are looking for lots of people, pop music, and a diverse crowd, the Backer or Club Fever may be for you. If you prefer a younger, more laid back bar, Corby's would fit your personality well.
If you enjoy bars, but big crowds are not your thing, you may want to try Madison Oyster Bar, with three floors, everyone can find what they are looking for at this bar. Fiddler's Hearth features live Irish music on Mondays and acoustic open mic on Wednesdays. They also have bands playing almost every night of the week, and you don't need to be 21!! They close early, but after the band finishes, you can head over to the Oyster Bar, which is right next door.
For the music lovers, two South Bend bars stand above the rest. Our favorite bar, Simeri's Old Town Tap is unlike anything you have experienced. This bar has a very loyal following and is the premier live music venue in the area. They feature a diverse menu, but their specialties are the Hungarian Goulash and the Turkey Sandwich on Pretzel Bread. Come out on a Wednesday to catch Acoustic Night sponsered by Miller Lite on the patio. This bar is the most special in the summer, spring, and fall, but they still have bands inside the bar in the winter. Club Landing draws the most diverse crowd in town, and has live music or DJs almost every night.
