Don't come here if you feel like being assaulted by doormen. No line to go upstairs yet the guy with the clicker makes you wait while letting his friends and others that came in behind you up sooner.

Great Urban feel with the remodel of an old fire station. Love the open air feel of the top level and the patio. Very appealing to the young generation. Great Ribs and wings. Good service. Open mic night is great with local artists.
