The Art Bar is a great late night place. We went with a large group of people at about 11 PM Saturday night. We danced. We talked. We drank. It's very pleasant place to hang out. We will be back.

Just went back for a college reunion of sorts. They have built a nice stage in the side room. Other than that, it looks like it did in 1995. A fun throwback. Decent prices and quick service too.

This is a good place to go with your friends. Do not expect good service or a table since it is a bar to have drinks, listen to some poetry, dance or do some kind of cultural stuff. I really enjoyed it.

Art Bar can be one of your best nights out or it can feel like you wasted your night. The crowd is very mixed: Straight, gay, married, single, partnered, confused and unsure. When the DJ is playing, it's insane! You can dance the night away...More
