On weekends, the small crowd at this dodgy, dimly lit man’s bar can make it feel downright convivial. Otherwise the faded watering hole is surely where Edgewater’s gentrification holdouts will wage their last stand. Lonely? Drop a few quarters in the jukebox and pour your heart out along with Dolly as she begs Jolene not to take her man.
