“Down to earth, strong drinks”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We were there last Saturday night. No cover. Though a bit run down, the environment is comfortable and the drinks are strong. The restroom is clean.

A decent liquor selection is also a plus. Tanqueray Sterling and Glenlivet were surprising offerings. A couple of pool tables and darts are available for those who play. The owner and her son are friendly, but our bartender was a little cold.The music mix is pretty good, playing the newer popular dance hits. Has the feeling of a larger "neighborhood" bar.

“Smell and bad drinks”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

Besides the smell if a very bad odor, these guys can't make a simple drink. They flood the drink with alcohol which doesn't give the drink any flavor. I guess it's ok for a totally intoxicated person.
