that depends on a lot of factors= Age, People preference, music, cost of drinks etc.

Probably the best place to meet younger(attractive) people would be 112, the battery, or capones. Of course expect to pay more for drinks and be ready for some stuck up girls and douchey drunk frat boys. Capones and 112 also have bands at times which can bring large crowds. Knights near the campus can get pretty crowded with young college people on certain nights with drink specials.
Tiptons is on the best all around place, you can smoke inside, can dress basically however you want and the drinks are reasonable. Its one of the places that most people hit up for at least a beer regardless of where else they are going downtown.
The galaxy lounge can be pretty hopping when a good band is playing or if they are having some kind of event. A good mix of people.
Numans serves as the meltingpot of downtown. Its probably the biggest place, 2 floors and pool tables. It does kind of have a slight white trash/ country feel but hey you can definitely meet some cool people and have a good time.
The hideaway is a decent place, some good live music at times, the place is a bit small but it works.
The downhome is a excellent place to hear music or just relax, not exactly for meeting people but you can always come across people who appreciate music as you do. Attendance really depends on whose playing.
The Acoustic coffee house is the "hippie" hangout, A relaxed environment, you can find some good musicians there at times, and some good people.
New Beginnings is the gay bar for the area. A ok place to dance and enjoy yourself even if youre straight.
Electric Cowboy has a large dance floor, doesnt get too packed anymore. Usually a large middle aged presence. For years it was a busy place.
Baileys is mainly a sports bar with pool tables, can get quite busy during mma or other popular sporting events.
Also there is =
Scullys, Encore(mostly black hangout), The Crowbar(dive bar), Everettes, Fanatics(sports bar), the cottage, cappys apex(bikerish bar) but I havent had any real experience with those. You also have the restaurants/bars mellow mushroom, jacks city grill, applebees etc. Hopefully this gave you a general idea.

Thanks for the information! That is very helpful. I am pretty sure I will be hitting up 112 tonight and Capones tomorrow night. Is there a dress code for either?

I HATE being around people. I prefer being locked up in my house all day, with my PS 2 console. Being around others (with all due respect), leads to nothing but babeling and violence all the time.
