Not a bad bar. Good selection of beers. Eclectic decorations inside. The bartender gave us a hard time for throwing darts after only putting a quarter in the "dart machine" instead of the requisite 75 cents.

The venue was unique, and the music great. The only reason I didn't give it it 5 stars is because the door guy was not very nice. The bar was dead, and my wife and I only wanted a quick drink, but a heafty cover...More
