Aptly names for the city with the biggest colony of Mexican bats - very cool space with live music 🎶 and tons of character . Come here on Friday night

Sat & Mon nights a band plays some of the best Blues music. Attendance hurt by extreme grunginess (not cool-just dirty, grimey) Clean up the joint before it's closed down.

Walked in because my wife said the band would play Commodores, Temptations - stuff like that...they didn't. They were playing crap music and the place smelled like pee, so we walked back out.

Fun bar for live music. No cover charge on a Thursday night. Great band. The crowd seemed to be in their 20s and 30s. It's one of many saloons on the street. Fun night.

So we walked in here to check it out because of the interesting name, and I'm pretty sure an actual bat wouldn't get caught in there. The Bat Bar gives dive bars a bad name. Walked into the bathroom and did a 180 and walked...More

We had just finished dinner nearby and thought we'd stop in for a beer. It was a little early for the crowds and we ended up being the only ones in the bar at the time. It was just your average 6th St. bar, but...More
