Foursquare Tips

  • Go all the way to the back and read the ceiling. Whoever thought to write the talking heads once in a lifetime lyrics was a genius. Seriously, super rad. They also got a pinball machine. Woo hoo
  • A fun, inexpensive, and considerably less crowded alternative to 169 Bar. The bartenders are friendly, the cocktails are great, and there's complimentary popcorn!
  • Let me just say this is the best neighborhood bar and leave it at that. I've never come in without leaving with a couple new local friends.
  • The bar tenders are awesome people! Chat em' up!
  • Have no fearthe well whiskey shots aren't as scary as they appear (served in little medicine cups).
  • BOLIN is getting away with it
  • The diveyest dive there ever was with $5 PBR tallboy and shot.
  • Bartenders are SO nice here. Chat 'em up
  • Divey and grimey. Great music. Hit the taco window down the block for snacks.
  • Decent frozen margaritas (they're cheap too)
  • Super dive. Good for popcorn and really cheap beer.
  • Awesome punk rock dive bar
  • Dive bar to the extreme. On weekends during the day, three bucks for a well shot and bud light. Have a round or two then soak it up with Chinatown fare.
  • Great punk music. Best and only place to get drunk on $3 and trashed for $6
  • This bar is a gem- friendly, A+ music. If the front is crowded move to the middle. Just don't go all the way to back room- a scary monster lives back there. Steer clear and you'll have a great time
  • Ky will serve you an amazing drink! Tip her well!
  • Cheap drinks and a better option than places nearby if you're looking for something less crowded. Very nice dive bar experience
  • Cheap drinks, privacy
  • They play Thursday and Thrice as bar music and their bar grafitti is top notch. I'm not sure the last time I was more in love with a bar.
  • Very nice street vibe to it, can spend hours in there.
