Located in the Warehouse District, this house of humor sits just outside of the downtown scene. Comedians take the stage Mondays through Saturdays twice each evening. Jokes aren't the only thing you get at Acme -- the adjacent restaurant Sticks includes a full menu, and the cocktail specials in the bar are comprised of namesake carafe blends like the Three Stooges or the Bob Hope. The tap beers are diverse enough to satisfy brew lovers looking to try something new, and wine enthusiasts can enjoy an equally extensive selection. Dinner and show specials are available, along with a newly added happy hour, giving plenty of opportunity to bring some laughter into your evening escape.
