Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

This cash-only dive modeled after a living room tends to get sweaty. You can blame that on a free jukebox full of long forgotten ’50s soul songs and Showtime’s house band, Granny and the Boys—a quintet led by an 81-year-old woman. If you haven’t already guessed it, this place is quirky. A $5 Natty Boh/shot special will give you the courage to ask someone to dance. Things typically don’t kick off until 11 or later, so plan on this being your final destination for the night.
