A tiny bar with a huge amount of fun. Beware, they are cash only. They have a fun pool table, and a juke box which is always a party favorite for late nights in bars. The bartenders are friendly and more than happy to chat it up with you if you sit at the bar. PBR is $2 and shots are served in funny mini beer glasses.
