    Best bartenders in town. I've been coming here since it first open, and all I have to say is my usual or it's already being made as they see me walk thru the door. 5 stars all the way.

    Friendly neighborhood bar. Hipster-y, but not in a bad way. The bartenders are great, the pours are generous, and they are always playing the oddest/greatest movies on their TV.

    Go to Barfly's and order the "Happy Meal". Best 5 bucks you'll ever spend trying to get sauced. You have to earn your 10 dollar minimum at this place.
