This bar is very laid back, slightly dive-y (in a good way). Drinks are reasonably priced and the service is good. No frills, but very smoky. Nearly everyone in the bar was smoking it seemed. So be sure to wear clothes you don't mind smelling...More

Came in after a concert for drinks and a late snack. Their burgers are great. Service was pretty lacking but it's a local dive so kind of expected.

This is a great bar for the 20-40 cool crowd. Not too cool, but if you like a bar/ grungy pool hall you will like this. The servers were great, the mood was awesome. Highly recommend. I think they have karaoke sometimes too!

A dive bar through and through. They have comedy shows and music. Staff were all cool. Good place to hang. They have food but I didn't eat. Standard bar-fare. Good selection of beers. I don't think they do any liquor drinks.

This is the definition of a dive bar. The website clearly shows that so you should check it out. Friendliest staff in Memphis.
