    You'll need a key for the ladies to use the bathroom. Friendly service, well priced drinks and a giant urinal to piss in.

    Fun place to hang out with friends. Napkin toss on Sunday evening at 9pm is something to remember.

    Some of the best bartenders in the quarter either start here or still work here. Always welcoming.

    Make sure you go and see Bristol Palin bartending during the 9 to 5 am shifts. Audrina Patridge also makes guest appearances as a bartender during 1 to 9 pm shifts.

    Show up at 9pm for the "love is in the air" tradition- big fun.

    If you need to get away from the noise, try to get upstairs and out onto the patio deck. Unless it's Mardi Gras, almost no one is ever there.
