    Whiskey specials every night of the week. Upstairs bar with a pool table. One of the best dives in the city.

    $3 shots of Makers and $3 Labatt's on Friday nights. Don't be afraid of this punk dive bar - it also serves top notch whiskey and drinks. The second floor can get a little rowdy at times.

    As crowded as Delilah's gets, it never feels TOO crowded. Good service upstairs and downstairs (which opens later in the night). Good specials, even on weekends.

    Last call announcement is good and entertaining. Cheap specials. This place will make u a fan of whiskey even if ur dead set against it. Snag a matchbook & be the coolest fire source on the block.

    With $3 daily specials ($4 for mixed drinks), you simply can't find a more affordable place to throw back shots of Maker's or Jim Beam before a night on the town.

    The cleanest part of this bathroom is Jeremy's mouth, and even that's pretty filthy.

    Drink some Maker's Mark; rumor has it the neon sign out front was custom made by Maker's and given to the bar because they sold such a high volume of the Bourbon brand.

    I've loved this place a long time DESPITE ITS BEING FULL OF WHITE PEOPLE. This and the Duke of Perth are responsible for my adulthood - long love affair with whiskey.
