We stopped in for dessert and we’re disappointed that they did not have a name. Ordered some nachos and beer which are good and priced well. Nice atmosphere with the outside. On the corner of Jackson and north-central we get to see all the happenings...More

We waited in The Old City, until time for this place to open. I had noticed on my Untappd app that they had one of my favorite craft beers as being listed on tap. We had planned on sitting at the bar but, as soon...More

When in doubt after a great day with your friends jump in an uber and head to the Urban bar. I had the chicken tacos and they were delish. If you want something sharable definitely go for the nachos.

Coming from a non-smoker, this bar (that you can smoke inside) is my all time favorite bar to go. The specials on beer are awesome, the food is always tastey, the servers are super friendly and the atmosphere is unbeatable. They have darts, pool, foosball,...More

Lacks atmosphere. No live music ever, which seems strange for a Old City bar. The food is bad to decent at best.

Pool, darts, other games. Outside area for sitting. Not a club kind of bar. Nice atmosphere for chatting with friends, having a drink and relaxing.
