Paymaster contains the best elements of a dive bar without actually being one. So grab a beer—and a killer burger, if you're hungry—and head back to the expansive, perpetually buzzing patio complete with pool table. There's now a functioning back bar as well as a photo booth. Best tourist attraction? The very adult vending machine near the restroom stocked with everything but snacks.
