With its gaudy mishmash of faux Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass, wood paneling and crumbling Euro-style urinals, this corner tavern seems a likely candidate for Extreme Makeover: Bar Edition. Otherwise, this is a perfectly likable corner tavern with a stellar jukebox where single women sip cosmos out of frosted martini glasses while old men huddle in the corner swilling beer and whiskey.
