Time Out says

Ex-cop Tony Anthony’s low-key lounge draws workers from the nearby juvenile detention center and board of education, plus police officers and politicians. Miller Lite, MGD ($3 drafts) and Tres Mujeres tequila are the most popular tipples, and blues men Little Milton and Bobby “Blue” Bland dominate the free jukebox. The back room occasionally hosts no-cover blues concerts.
