    If you're a native, all your friends are already there. If you're from out of town, you'll feel like a local in no time. If the beef jerky guy is there… buy some.

    Best thing about the drinks is they are cheap and strong, but caution 1 drink here equals 2 almost anyplace else. It can sneak up on you.

    Aside from a drama-free night, you will get good hot wings and cold beer at this neighborhood bar. It's hidden behind the Mid City Mall and locally known for serving the strongest drinks in town. Read more

    Best "Louisville" bar, IMO. Off the beaten path, outsiders don't know about it. Hope that Queenie is behind the bar. She's awesome ... But doesn't take crap from anyone.
