  • Leslie pics the best music!!
  • Find a marker or bring your own!
  • Rainbow is the chit! Coolest dive bar! & the music is LOUD how I like it!
  • Free hand jobs
  • Don't mind the foul stench of stale piss, and shame.
  • They are always out of Jameson
  • Rainbow and Alvin are the best! Also Jimmy, especially if he brings in Lola!
  • An all around dump. Cool staff though.
  • R.I.P locust tap.
  • Friendly staff and a nice environment.
  • Mike and Ginger
  • Good place to stop after the holiday stroll.
  • They do have sink between bathrooms!
  • An obscure toadies song came on over the jukebox. Win.
  • Awesome selection on the jukebox. Do it!
  • Tip them bartenders fat, they rock
  • I've been going there for months, they have a sink it's in between the bathrooms. Don't be gross people.
  • if you go to the bathroom don't expect to lock the door or wash your hands when you're done. there's no lock or sink. :) but still awesome place!!
  • Peace Tree Hop Wrangler in bottles! Great local IPA!
  • Its warm hear. Kind of
