Went there last night for a couple of drinks around 6pm before dinner. There were four people at the bar… and a loud, obnoxious bartender. Since we were meeting two other couples there, we were deciding whether to sit in one of the lounging areas (featuring tattered dirty, love seats and chairs) or at the bar. Before we could decide, the unpleasant and rude bartender said, “ I’m not waiting on you over there”. As I approached the bar she asked in her rude gravelly voice “What do you want”. I asked if she didn’t want us there for some reason, and she just said no, that’s just how I am. So anyway, I order a Miller Lite and before I can order my wife’s drink she says “We’re out of Miller Lite”. By then, one of the other couples we were meeting arrived and they ordered 2 margaritas, but the bartender said “This isn’t a Mexican restaurant and I don’t make margaritas”. Everyone ended up drinking drinks we didn’t want, while listening to this obnoxious, loud woman babble behind the bar. At one point we tried to order some appetizers but she told us the kitchen was closed (rather odd for being 6pm on a Saturday night, plus there were people at the bar eating). I had been at this place before and put up with the cramped tables (and rather high drink prices for a hole in the wall), because they have some good live music, but after last nights experience none of us will ever be back. It’s really hard to believe they let this wacky, rude woman work there.

From the easy chairs to the couches to the warm hospitable staff, this is a place I like to get to once a month...usually on Tuesday with 1/2 price house wines and some domestic beers

Good martini menu. Small plates were good. This would be a good place for a first date. I liked the sofa seating. But, other than that, nothing to rave about or go back again.

We meet another couple here for drinks and appetizers. Everything we tried was really good, especially the steak bites. The music was nice, and not so loud that you couldn’t hear anything else. It’s very tight in there. I like that kind of cozy feel. There is some couch seating too. The drink selection was above average, and everything made well.

So my girlfriend and I stop in on a Wednesday night for $5 martini night. They closed at 11pm as noted on website. We arrived at 945pm and bar was closed. Will never go here again.

Great place to stop before or after dinner. Local flavor right downtown. Easy parking. Staff is second to none.

Small but cozy spot for a drink, good appetizer or two and live music. Even better when the weather is nice enough to sit on the patio.
