    Door man seems to have issues with women, blowing smoke in their faces upon entry.

    Come to drink and play free pool with the worst pool sticks in the world. Club scene in the back later in the night.

    Great cocktails, small but good tap list, good bottle list, and laid back vibe. Already been back several times!

    Had a great time; however, there was a male bartender who was pretty rude and rough with my friends back in July. He got pretty mouthy with some of the ladies as well.

    Always a bro-pumpin' party on the weekend and great jazzy weekdays. The place makes us think we're nearing Hotel de Ville on the Paris Metro.

    Cash-only, dark like a moody cave. Chill on week nights, pointless on the weekend

    Order a Tom Collins. Their ingredients make it one you won't forget, for its deliciousness and its potency.

    The name of this tavern loosely translates to "bar of the city," serves drinks often made with local spirits in a cozy setting with antique furniture and a speakeasy-style room in the back.

    You will save cash here when you wait 15-20 minutes to order a drink on a Saturday night.

    First time here. Very pleasant evening. Been looking for a Tuesday night spot and this place wins with the cocktails and live music. Brad made me a great Corpse Reviver, Old-Fashioned, and Last Word.

    You’ll find an extensive beer list, leather booths, brocade wallpaper and hipsters shooting stick in an antler-adorned back room, but they’ve set their corner tap on the path toward longevity. Read more
