This place smelled like urine and stale beer! Beer is cheap but warm! I was scared and we were in there during the day. Bartender was friendly but that was the only positive comment I can say. Run to the next bar!

One of those dumpy but fun to hang places for the locals. Can have good music. Total pit sometimes you're in the mood for a pit!

The beer selection is good but the service is bad. The staff is ridiculously not helpful and will make your experience miserable.

I personally don't care for the place. It's not a bad place, just not my thing. Kind of a dive, but hey not many places to go in this great Capital City of ours. There can be some good local bands.
