Three Aces has the look and feel of a punky college bar. But because chef Matt Troost is rolling fresh pasta and frying pig ears in the kitchen, it’s hard not to pay attention to the food. If you’re just here to drink, nightly specials bring the better-than-average beer list a bit more within reach, while rotating DJs spin theme nights of punk and rock to tie the scene together.
