We came for drinks, and drinks we had. This place is definitely divey, but fun divey, not fear-for-your-life divey. It's got a ton of character. We had vodka sodas that were heavy on the vodka. Nothing fancy. Had fun chatting with other patrons and looking...More

Great place to hang for a couple of brews. A no nonsense type of bar with a lot of history. You will have to visit and ask the bartender about the history. Walls are made from wooden ships....just wicked cool. If your a stuck up...More
