In an historic building right in the middle of town. Warm & inviting in the gloomy days and outside seating for nice days. Excellent menu. Delicious drinks. Really cool place to meet friends and hang out.

Adults only!!!! Best Tequila bar on the Eastside. Tuesdays is the best time to go and try top shelf Tequila for half price. Food is very good, wait staff friendly and educated. Happy hour is one of the best around.

busy place but if you can handle noise, go for it. Deafening at times. Good food and drink and not light on the wallet.
