Its a nice enough looking place and it has a nice walk in humidor. In order to smoke you have to go to a segregated area. The bartender didn't pay attention to the clients wants (long wait for a drink) and was about as friendly as w wet cat. The jukebox volume is kept low, so when I politely asked if the music could be turned up, I was told " see the art class over there, they want to hear their music, so no I can't turn it up.". So their focus is to cater to the needs of a group that spends zero money in the bar, and reject the paying customers simple requests? I will not be back. I prefer a smoking lounge where you can actually smoke and a patron friendly environment.

I do not frequent bars, but went to MTL to see my Son's band Motions play. I expected the typical downtown dive, but this place was pretty nice and a fun place to relax with friends and listen to some local music. Besides Motions, I know of a couple of other decent local bands that have performed here. Drinks were priced OK and love that they showcase local talent.

The selection of cigars was a little small. They did have some of my favourite though so that was good.

The "cigar lounge" is just an upstairs area with fans blowing the smoke into the regular bar area. I'm not sure what this accomplishes?

really fun place to hang out and relax, talk to people, listen to music, check out passerby's and street traffic. One of the most unique places I know of in California.
