Best college bars in America
With a small cover charge, students at the University of Central Florida drink as much as they want, or can handle, at the Knight Library.

Based on the music alone, you’ll wish you had transferred to the University of Vermont.
In order to track down the best college bars around the country, The Daily Meal went to the primary source: the students. Requests flooded in with students eager to put their go to bars on the list. Naturally, everyone has a little bias when it comes to his or her alma mater, and an objective vote was difficult.
Music That includes juke boxes, fake id DJs, and live music. As long as the bar had some sort of method for drunk college students to fist pump and screech at the top of their lungs to “Livin’ On A Prayer,” a point was assigned.
An outdoor area Students need somewhere to go to cool off from the dance floor, after all.
A selection of ten beers or more on the menu
Dance floor What bar is complete without a cesspool of bumping and grinding?
Liquor Mixed drinks and shots get you drunk quicker, no further explanation necessary.
The ability to get a beer for $3 or less on a weekend night Let’s face it, college students are not known for their deep pockets or refined tastes. The cheaper, the better, no matter the taste.

Shot specials Whether it’s a free shot with a beer or $1 jello shots, we need it all.

A ranked list of the best college bars in America would not be complete without the University of Central Florida’s Knight Library. The general size of the establishment is impressive in itself; students have access to three full bars, a giant dance floor, a patio bar, and even VIP sections. Not a big dancer or drinker? Knight Library has darts, fake id generator customized beer pong tables, and corn hole boards to get you entertained. Still not impressed? An Island Oasis frozen drink machine is the newest addition to the bar.
Iowa City’s Brothers Bar Grill is a combination of a college bar and a sports grill with all the fixings you need for a good night: dartboards, pool tables, outside patio, and a massive beer selection including $2 Blue Moon drafts on Mondays, and $4 Keystone and Busch Light pitchers on Friday and Saturday nights. Sure, there’s a cover charge on game days, but you’ll make up your money in drink deals, like the $5 mug which you can fill up for $1 each time (and you won’t suffer from FOMO, fake id as this is where a majority of your fellow undergraduates will be during football season).
