    Free chili/hotdog happy hour is gone, but in its place is a series of $2 plates of high-end bar food: kobe sliders, meatballs, blt sliders, tacos, etc. More befitting the cool vibe.

    Came all the way from San Diego to see a mermaid. And she didn't feel like swimming... Don't count on the mythical creatures or having good service. Great look, everything else... Boo.

    Try the Speakeasy White Lightning on tap, very nice, easy-to-guzzle wheat beer. Far superior to Widmer.

    It's cheesy, but they have a great HH special - $4 for all pints.

    Expensive all around. And it's pretty loud 99% of the time. But the mermaid is really awesome!

    They lie about the mermaid... Said she'd come out at 10pm and at 10:30 they said "she may be here. She's been around a lot." Otherwise, good.

    This bar ain't all that. Mermaids are cool but they end too early so does the giant ipod usage. Good place to end the night!
