Went here on the recommendation of a friend bc we were looking for a great place to play pool. Was not disappointed! Visited on a Friday night and was pretty busy but only had to wait for 15mins before we got a pool table. Super fast tables & a decent selection of house cues. Enjoyed ourselves so much we came...

The bar is near the Mid-town Arts Cinema. Even though it is a smoking bar, the airflow is very effecient at keeping the air clean. It has a nice pub-grub menu, and reasonable drink prices. And there is large supply of board games and the like to entertain visitors.

We went to this place due to the cigar lounge next to it being crowded and standing room only. We decided to grab an appetizer and have a few drinks before heading somewhere else or waiting until the lounge cleared out a little. The place is is very large and the food and drinks are very reasonably priced. The problem... More

After dinner, we decided we still wanted to hang out. One of my friends googled and he came across The Independent and we decided to give it a try. Located in the Midtown Promenade off Monroe drive. Anyone who knows the area, parking can be a nightmare. We wanted to play pool and just hang out. A few ordered beers... More

The location is nice and the place is very lively. We played a couple games of pool and had some drinks. The downside to here is if you are not a smoker or if smoke bothers you, this place is not for you. Beside that everything else was ok.

I went here on a Thursday night and had a great time. They were having Trivia and the female was so hilarious. It was a great and nice crowd for a Thursday. The place had a huge selection of beers and great prices with fantastic customer service. It is truly a great place to go for fun, food and drinks.... More

My husband and I decided to stop by for a couple of beers and some food. It was a Monday around 6:00 pm, so there really wasn’t anyone in there, which was expected. The place looked like the average bar; however, they did appear to have a lot of different events that went on at this location. Also, it is... More
