This is a charming little tavern with great $5 drinks (beer and cocktails) with food deals that last into the weekend. Karaoke at night and a friendly bar staff, you can't go wrong by spending a night here!

This little corner pub nestled in between all the skyscrapers of midtown east has a good beer selection, friendly staff, and really good skillet mac and cheese. They also do karaoke. From what the bartender says they are a Kansas bar for basketball season.
