    Whatever you do DO NOT!!! keep an open tab with a credit card! The bartender adds bogus drinks on to your tab. I went in for two hours with a friend of mine and was charged for 4 shots of Patron and 1

    Update to the Credit card fiasco: I reported to the Better Business Bureau & the manager SAID he would give me a refund but then never did. The manager is as crooked as the bartenders

    When you enter, go straight for the pinball machine! Another fun quirk is the mugshot you can get, Becherovka cocktail in hand! Sit at the bar and discover the charm of this local dive-style bar.

    If you are coming here to "see" a band, don't bother: the stage is very short. The sound is good, so if that's all you want, then you're fine. I'd say 90% of the room can't see the stage.Only in front

    Came here on a Friday & had a good time. The DJ needs to update his music, but he still played real good old school jams. I love the cheap beer though. Recommended!!
