    Sketch looking on the outside but crazy fun on the inside. Great place for karaoke and kicking it with friends. Just up the stairs you'll find the dueling pianos. Head out back to the patio for hookah

    If you are looking for a dive/piano bar on the peninsula....this is your place. Not gonna lie-sometimes the crowd is a little random..but that's part of the appeal.
