This popular postwork midtowner offers daily drink specials, homemade sangria, plenty of imported beers (mostly bottled) and a live DJ spinning pop, rock and R&B every night but Sunday. The casual bar has an old-timey feel (lots of mahogany, stamped-tin ceilings, exposed brick), while the more upscale rear lounge features a second bar, ritzier red leather banquettes, and slate and quilted-fabric walls.
