Used to be a a very cool place with great music and crowd for a long time. Unfortunately not so much anymore, sub-par bands, expensive drinks, drugs, etc. Cocaïne junked bouncer...etc..good stuff u though...can get ur way in for free if u give some 'vitamins' to the bouncers at door...

If you'd like to give me a call to discuss this further I'd be very interested in which bouncer it is that you're referring too on the night of your visit. As for the bands, sorry it wasn't what you expected when you visited. We have a great relationship with all of the musicians that walk through our door and many of them have been playing with us for years. Our drinks are competitively priced with the bars in the immediate area. We aren't anymore expensive than anyone else. 401-585-7162. Thanks for your feedback.

The best bands in town. Noisy but that's what you go for. Good value in a very convenient location. A must.

Classic rock but good. Bartender shorted me $10 but I think it was an honest mistake, I hope. Went upstairs which is more chill than downstairs.
