If you are a resident of State College or a student of Pennsylvania State University,then you would most likely know Cafe 210 West. This friendly neighborhood bar, faintly reminiscent of the bar on Cheers only much better, is a known and much loved name on the campus of the university, and the crowd is largely made up of students, old or new. You can choose to sit inside the bar or out on the patio, enjoying a brilliant summer's day, while sipping on a cold 'brewski'.

Bringing students together without alcohol you say? It is easier said than done, but Chronic Town does it with flair. It is not only a laid back hookah spot with live music nights, but it also offers use of an espresso machine, coffee grinder and tea products. Even where there is no live music, nice background music aids you in your relaxation, social time or studying.
