    Been here a bunch but once I took a first date here before seeing Sound Team and Cold War Kids at Mercury Lounge. That was 2006 and we are now married and have a daughter. It worked! Oh, have an IPA.

    Great two-for-one happy hour every day until 8PM. And they even let you bring in tacos from the delicious taco truck across the street.

    This place seems much more enticing from the outside than once you enter it's surprisingly bland depths. Also, essentially every bar on this block has a buy one get one free happy hour.
