  • This tiny little dive is best avoided by the claustrophobic and best experienced around Christmas when they deck the place out in garish lights and decorations.
  • This cash-only bar used to be a famous cop hangout, but these days it's just a good place for a beer outside.
  • If you whistle at the bartender they give you a free beer!
  • Honestly the best dive bar after the Rainbow in LA and now after CBGB's demis. Just awesome
  • Greatest dive bar in America
  • If you want good food or a decent Craft Ale list, go anywhere but here. If you are over 30 they don't really want us anyway...even tho we are likely to Tip more.
  • We are good here
  • Four player Pac-Man: Battle Royale cocktail table arcade game in the back.
  • The whistling at the bartender for free beer is a myth!! I tried.
  • Whistle for free beer!
  • Ask for Chris!
  • play skeeball or pinball
  • favorite bar in town. cheap drinks. good times. always.
