Description: Located in the same Ravenna spot for decades, Cooper's is a neighborhood joint distinguished by its collect sum of nonattributes. The space is neither big nor small, the interior is neither dumpy nor luxurious, and the clientele is neither glamorous nor broken. If Cooper's were a person, it'd be a shadowy and incidental figure of undetermined age and gender—someone who is unable to appreciate the thrill of getting high and playing ping-pong with you all night in your neighbor's basement, but who also would never cock-block you or awaken you by kicking your mattress.

What else: They've got 23 beers on tap, along with a hefty selection of bottles (Russian River Consecration Ale, Stone Ruination IPA).

Happy hours: Mon–Fri 2–6 pm.

Happy-hour drink specials: $1 off all spirits, wine, and drafts (seasonal rotation may include Double Bastard Ale, Stone Pale Ale).

Happy-hour food specials: A menu of usual choices ($5 chicken tenders, $3.50 Caesar salad). recommended
