  • Go down stairs
  • Be prepared to show identification as they card _everyone_!
  • Sort of hidden away but the basement bar is solid. Drinks are strong, cheap and the noodle bowls kill!
  • Take a friend to the bathroom so you can watch each other pee.
  • The bartenders rock!!!!
  • Just like the rest of the bars in the city, there isn't any table service. Don't expect it and don't get pissed when nobody's coming to ask you what you want. Grow up.
  • The menu is in Papyrus. Classic!
  • I think the bartender forgot the whiskey in my whiskey sour, but I'd still come back for the atmosphere.
  • No such thing as banzai shots. Bartenders are weird.
  • Go downstairs, enjoy the drinks, laugh with the bartenders, dig on the noodle bowls, but avoid the batter, I mean, "fish" and chips....
  • Best nachos in town and an incredible happy hour!
  • Fellow vegans! The curry and general noodle bowls are vegan and they are delicious. The other two sauces are not vegan.
  • Cheap PBR and fun pinball!!
  • if you want to eat late, make sure to not wait for waiter/waitress, go to the bar!
  • if you like stout. try the chocolate. it's life changing
  • Go to Shanghai Tunnel & order a "Bonzai Shot" w/ some friends. Last one to finish drinks another. Consists of PBR & a shot of spiced rum dropped in. Tastes better than it sounds!
  • Still a decent dive, sorta-surprising date destination, too, but with a chill vibe.
  • Very dark underground bar, very cool. Has a pool table! Fairly good prices.
  • Kung pow hustle! Garlic fries!
  • The Kimchi rice was a bit mushy. Jasmine rice seemed to disintegrate when they fried it.
