Come here for the music. Expect it to be packed. Expect service to be slow. But the atmosphere and the live music make this a place to experience.

We dropped into this bar around 5:30 p.m. one evening, and were dumbstruck by the band! They were fantastic! Great Blues by Angela Adkisson and her group. Not sure why her and the band aren't playing in some famous joint, but hey, maybe BB King's...More
