    A pretty mellow bar with a nice mix of people, a nice gender ratio, and liberal 21 and up crowd. Reward yourself with a Strongbow! This is a good place to start or end a night. Read more

    I love how they fail to mention that some of the beers on their cardboard lack alcohol... Oh and the redhead bartender is a douchebag.. use subtraction when tipping him on credit.

    It’s worth it to come here for the pinball. Granted, it’s harder to be a wizard after a few Poison Girl shots, but it’s not rocket science. Had enough shots? Go for The Jones: ginger beer and bourbon.

    This Pepto-Bismol-pink-walled dive bar has the best bourbon selection in town—and a wall of pinball machines to boot. Read more

    Friendly bartenders, just know that it WILL be crowded on the weekend. Usually a pretty mixed-bag of folks out in the backyard.

    Bartenders are super knowledgeable in their american whiskey, ask for a bowl of goldfish and peanuts to drink it on the rocks.

    Dive bar that's no longer a true dive but I still like the vibe. Frequented here during grad school days.

    God forbid you ask for change for the pinball machine. The bartenders are rude. Otherwise, I like cabbage patch dolls.

    Avoid this place like the plague on weekends if you hate crowds or hipsters, but be sure to stop by for the Poison Pen series.

    Drinks are pricey, but a definitive top ten 'in' place on the right night, which is usually Fridays.
