Billed as "Your living room downtown",The 'Wood attracts patrons from all walks of life, anchored by college students and a group of hearty locals. The most relaxing bar I've ever been to, yet it is THE place to be for Fat Tuesday, Halloween, etc. If you need to kill time in Iowa City, go to The Deadwood.
Dingy, smokey, and dirty, everything you would ever want from a hole in the wall bar. While you will find a strage variety of characters, and odd things written/drawn on the walls of the bathroom, this bar has the best drinks in Iowa City. The most amazing Bloody Mary I have ever had.
2.75 Guinness on Monday nights. Amazing!
Trivia night on Tuesdays, 10pm-midnight. Always a great time. $2 tall boys, $1 PBR, Mitch the bartender being entertaining.
$3 Whiskey Sundays! Any whiskey you want, I'd recommend a whiskey cider on a cold night.
Best bloody marys in town
Free chili some game days
