Better known as The Cage. If you are kind of into some Johnny Cash and the Sex Pistols, this is perfect for you.

Great place to hang out and meet people. Everyone is friendly. Pitchers of microbrews are cheap. The food is basic, nothing special at all, but decent cheap bar food.

a.k.a. the Squirrel Cage. I have never seen anyone actually order coffee here, but I've been to a bunch of happy hours.
