Good place to drink and listen to live music. They usually have 2 bands. R&B is the norm. Dance floor. Get there before 8 to save on the cover charge. Afterwards is ok too, but if you're short on cash...:-)

Really like it over there! Bartenders are nice, atmosphere is cool, especially at the weekends, and there's a pretty good choice for beers and drinks in general; I recommended this place my friends!

Ping pong table, mini putt, and outdoor TV's! What more could you ask for in a bar! We sat in the outdoor section in the back watching a GS game and I was very impressed. Drinks were cheap, food was good and staff were friendly!

Food more a byline. It's the music & drinks one goes here for. Good meeting place for friends to enjoy Jazz, etc music, have a few cocktails. Large open back deck, parking can be difficult depending on band.
