    Legendary patio and a quintessential dive.

    Good beer selection. Fried chicken sandwich was good, but have had better. Eggplant fries are addictive. Monday at 6 was pretty empty, but good crowd as evening continued.

    This bar is best known for its mixed drink, but also has a great selection of beer on draft, as well as the cheap stuff in bottles for your hipster friends who want to dance + drink.

    Thia place has racist bartenders until you seem like a good tipper, at which time they will run to our credit card and see how much they can charge you for a local beer on the beer list.

    I ordered a vegan skillet meal & it came 2 hours later. On top of that long wait, it also came with bacon. Get your shit together Wonderland! Not eating here again.

    Great for outdoor seating and cheap drinks on any given Sunday. Need to recover from last night? This should be the first stop of the day.

    If you really want to enjoy the show: I recommend that you get there early with your friends, find a table, dig into the food & a few cocktails, because this is not karaoke for your weak. They Party!

    Beware of the hipster casting sleepy spells. After 20 minutes of waiting to be served, the hipster ignored us and all of us became suddenly tired.
