Just a quick stop in for a happy hour beer while we waited for the Art walk to start. Reasonable prices for happy hour and friendly service. Clean restrooms always a plus!

There is nothing fancy about this place, but they have $2 Bud Light draft specials on Sunday and a cornhole set with tables nearby to set your stuff down. My friends and I enjoyed hanging out and playing cornhole!

I thought there was no smoking in indoor bars? It wreaks of smoke in this place. It's large with pool tables and two large bars. Bar service is very slow and amateur. Bouncers are nice.

Bar tenders were always on point with getting drinks the second I ran out. Staff is really friendly if you take the time to chit chat with them. Bouncers are really chill too. Just don't be an unruly customer and you'll be treated with respect
