Attracted by the name and had to go. Wasn't disappointed. Small, dark and great blues playing every evening. Great atmosphere and only one beer on tap, but it very welcome after a hot day in the city.

I don't know how it happened that I haven't visited in this place earlier, but I'm happy I did not. What a weird little place, but what a feeling! I gotta go again!
