  • There are "dive" bars and dive bars. Former frequented by hipsters, the later by depressed middle-aged alcoholics. Chelsea Place is the later.
  • Drink cheap whiskey and munch on bar nuts while making strangely entertaining conversation with FOB bartenders.
  • Would suggest not venturing into the dungeon to go to the bathroom. Was waiting for the rapist to jump out of one of the random doors.
  • This is where dreams go to die
  • going to the pissers here is like traveling through the hobbit tale.
  • Pay for drinks as you go. Running a tab could lead to a surprise when you close out.
  • Simultaneously wonderful and soul crushing. Pop in for a quick cheap drink bit don't get trapped by a chatty drunk.
  • The Asian bartender is awesome!!!
  • This is a good place to drink. I've heard you can play liar's dice vs the bartenders for shots, but no one knew how to play last time I went there.
  • The bartenders don't do a good job of weeding out the overserved. I refuse to go after a bartender didn't stop a drunk patron from hitting another person. They care more about money than safety.
  • Das Lager Beer ist okay, die Bedienung freundlich.
  • If nearby Tunnel Top is too busy, try their doubly divey neighbor!
  • Best Dive bar in the area. Great service from Tia.
  • You can't go wrong with a place with free popcorn and peanuts. Bring cash-there's a $20 minimum for cards.
  • What's wrong with FOBs? They are awesome!
  • Dawn in the bathroom for hand soap... My hands have never been so bubbly in a bar's bathroom.
  • Great people...I got my bday drink...12/31
  • Ashtray!
  • Ask for a 'Tic Tac'. Great drink.
