Definitely not the place to go if you want an atmosphere for dancing, but I recommend them for a casual drink with a friend. They always have specials going on for drinks and the staff is the bomb. Check 'em out!

Came here for a bachelorette party with about 15 girls. Had such a great time and the bachelorette had a blast. The music was super fun, from 80's to 90's to current pop. We were dancing the entire night. Great service, it was super busy...More
