Besides the architecture, there was nothing to bring me back to this bar. Drinks were mediocre. Wine list? What wine list? They have red and white. Bartenders were not particularly pleasant or quick...and it wasn't busy. Skip it.

Reviewers seemed to like it, but maybe they didn't roll in here at midnight on a Friday, like we did, at which point it was a dive bar-drunk tank - for all practical purposes. Sorry guys...

No meals there...we went in for drinks. An interesting atmosphere...like an old neighborhood bar. Drinks inexpensive but ....ask for that martini to be shaken because they STIR!!!!

Nice old bar across from our Hotel. Not a ton of room but I didn't go upstairs. Decent draft selections.

Well sort of. It burned down a few years ago, but it's been restored to original condition. Loved the Maker's Mark on "the rock". I heavy tumbler with a single large ice cube. Really classy.

Oh, and you have to use the men's urinal (sorry ladies). It's like going on the corner of the Library of Congress.
