So disappointed, we were looking bacon and got nothing. Since the bar moved they stopped serving food. It would be nice if their website reflected the change. We had a drink, but the martini was made with cheap vodka.

We had some really great drinks at Bad Decisions after going out on the pedal mill. Not much of a street presence but glad we went in. We would go back.

Crammed in which made for a very crowded experience in what is a small venue. Atmosphere pretty good and service prompt but you need to book a table really.
