Reviewed May 24, 2014

Overpriced drinks, watered down. Really bad service and management never seems to get any better. I agree with the other reviewer who talked about mold problems. Again, owner doesn't seem to care. Go elsewhere.

“Mold issues”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

This place has major mold issues. I hope they inspect the place and get the issue resolved b/c it's a public health hazard. Other than this problem, they have a good atmosphere and I enjoy the drinks.

“Great place to start the night!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Bar tenders are great! The guy there will make anything you want, and if they don't have something the first time you ask, they'll have it the next time you're there!

“Fun atmosphere”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I went here for a first date to grab some drinks, I thought the atmosphere was great. The drinks were good and affordable. I would recommend this place for a fun night out. It didn't ever get too busy, but it was lively. It's a little hard to find if you aren't familiar with the area.

“Different, but very cool.”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

Yes this place is under a bank so is dark, but it is pretty different and cool for the Ann Arbor area. There are 2 pool tables that are nice with a loungy feel and then a large bar area with tables and chairs. It seems there's almost always some sort of happy hour drink special. I also went to this place last October before Halloween which was awesome. They had the place decorated pretty creatively with scary goblins! I definitely recommend checking this place out now and again in the fall!
