    I used to think I would never experience such a disappointing service and staff ever in my life, before this happened.

    If you sit in the far booth on the couch, you may find yourself stretching your neck a lot to see the left side of the stage. If you're here for a show, beware!

    The banda were ver y good and dribla as well, but paying a $5 entrance and later find out a 2 drink min consumption per person and bitchy waitressing service was kinda dissapointing.

    Music was good but 10$ cover and 2 ridicously expensive drink per person per show at a table is too much

    Highly recommend checking it out if you love live music & a bit of rock history. Place is small but worth squeezing into. This is Dylan's old stomping grounds!

    If you are playing here with your band, expect to hit the stage a little bit later than scheduled. Virtually no backline. But the sound system is excellent.
