Met friends here for drinks and to enjoy the Mile of Music event. Had a great time, wonderful service, good selections and exceptional music! Wish we had a Spats in Tennessee.

Favorite hometown watering hole. Spouse loves the Olive Burger. I am partial to the Spatz Brau. Friendly atmosphere with a varied bar menu.
