I have been walking by this door for years and finally popped in this weekend to find a delightful relaxed yet lively bar, cozy and comfortable. Great stop, recently discovered, will be a regular from now on.

Good service. Nice locals. The bartender gave me a biscuit to feed the regular’s dog, which was a lot of fun.
