    This is the dive bar you go to when you're already drunk and well into your evening! If you ever hear about a Warchild show happening at this venue, it's totally worth attending!

    A great hangout for those who want to catch a show of bands spanning the music genres from alternate rock to punk to almost everything else! Precision is my inspiration.

    The band performances they have are pretty amazing. If you ever get the chance to, watch Iritis perform.
