We absolutely love the idea of a slightly scuzzy bar being surrounded by uppity, polished, tourist-filled restaurants. The winding bar area is occupied by loners watching the big screen, but near the surrounding checkered tablecloth–topped tables is the more gregarious set. And in the back, three pool tables are ripe for a good game.

This is place is good for a bar... They have fun sports quizzes you can take while you're sitting around. Always had great experiences with the staff; very friendly. The wings, while not the best wings I've ever had, are pretty damn tasty and impressive solely because they are wing-and-drumette-attached style. Great buffalo sauce on those. Not a beer drinker but my friend said selection is OK.
