When we asked our waitress at this dimly lit basement bar if there were any specialty beers on tap, she looked awfully confused. Despite its wide selection, that’s a question that doesn’t get asked a lot. Instead, regulars (a youngish, button-down crowd) suck down $3 Coors bottles, listen to the classic-rock-fueled jukebox and play table tennis, pool and foosball. Stop by during the week when frat boys are nowhere to be found.

I hate to admit this...I really like this bar even though there are a ton of flaws and I should never return.

Its a dive.  Its disgusting in here.  I only drink bottled beer here.  

They always play great music...a fantastic mix of oldies and new.  Our crowd loved it.

They have giant jenga!  They have beer pong!  They have shady ass servers and bartenders so I would pay cash every round.

Alas, I still like it....why...?  I am not sure.
