"Bar Month" at OnMilwaukee is back for another round, brought to you by Great Northern Distilling: grain to glass spirits, handmade in Wisconsin. The whole month of March, we're serving up intoxicatingly fun articles on bars and clubs – including guides, the latest trends, bar reviews, the results of our Best of Bars readers poll and more. Grab a designated driver and dive in!

Not only do bar games provide plenty of fun for a group out on the town, adding a little liquor to the mix seems to make every pool shot line up perfectly and every dart fly straight (at least for a little while, anyway).

This year, we have a new winner: 42 Lounge. While 42 Lounge nabbed this award in 2014, the year it opened, in 2015, voters selected long-time favorite Landmark Lanes, which finished second this time.

42 Lounge – named for a reference in the book "The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" – specializes in "all things geek" and revolves around gaming. Hence, the category win is well deserved.

Plus, it's the ideal locale to talk "Star Trek," "Star Wars," "Dr. Who," "The Lord Of The Rings," or what you plan to wear this year to Ren Faire.

For our editors' pick, we selected The Tracks, at least in part because our stellar programmer Nick Barth runs the trivia nights there, but also because it's a Riverwest landmark.
