80 North: Berkeley, Kip’s Bar


Kip’s Bar  Upstairs at 2439 Durant Ave./Telegraph Ave., (510) 848-4340; www.kipsberkeley.com.  L Tu-F, D daily, Sat-SunBr; $.  No reservations.  Long popular with Cal students interested in eating and drinking while  playing pool and dancing and watching sports TV, this campus classic has updated its decor and menu.  A large open room with exposed pipes running casually along the ceiling now holds dark wood tables that provide a more muted feel, but it still says American roadhouse.  The new menu includes items such as spinach salad with figs and blue cheese, chicken-and-waffle sliders, and a basket of fish & chips.  The house cheeseburger is made with fresh angus beef and served on a ciabatta roll with sautéed onions and secret sauce.  It is big, messy, and delicious.  A full bar serves up 22 beers on tap.  Well drinks are $3 during Happy Hour (M-F 4-7pm), and bottomless mimosas are $10 at Saturday and Sunday brunch.
