The "shocks & struts" sign is a vestige of the former tenant, an auto-parts shop. “Matchless” actually refers to a classic British motorcycle. The appointments would attract anyone looking for a good night out: large, comfortable booths; 16 beers on tap; a foosball table; a winding, custom-made copper bar that accommodates couples; even a small gallery that features local artists.
