Located in the historic 1920s Klafter building, this medium-size eatery has two floors, the first of which houses most of the tables, an internet jukebox (just so you know, the songs took a long, long time to finally play. You have no idea how many times I endured "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" just to get to my AC/DC), flat-screen televisions and low-lighting. This lighting provides most of the ambience, along with some candles that are spread on the bar counter. The upstairs is where you'll do most of your drinking, and the exposed brick lends to the bar atmosphere.
Downstairs is a slightly more formal, cocktail-y lounge feel. The black wrap-around booths cover the lounging angle. The pool table in the corner takes care of the recreation question. The bar counter is not as large, and you will find that most of the people there are dressed to impress while chatting with their pals.
If you are hungry, you certainly should order your fair share of food. The eats are of a typical bar variety, and typically cost $7-$15. You'd do best to show face around 10 p.m. on a Friday night. There, you will find friendly, outgoing bartenders (particularly Angela), clientele that are well in their thirties, and enough spirits to fill a memorable night on the town.
