- Local band flyers and photocopied want ads greet customers walking through the angular entryway, which obstructs the goings-on inside from street view. Bud Light lampshades hang over tattered tan-vinyl booths up front. Two pool tables in the back are perpetually lined with quarters--don't be surprised if the eight or cue ball are missing. Cute bartenders serve reasonably priced drinks, but don't expect top-shelf liquor. Jukebox variety favors '80s new wave and '90s indie rock, and DJs often set up in the back corner, where they spin everything from Ella Fitzgerald to Siouxsie & the Banshees. Little more than a hole-in-the-wall, this unsuspecting venue has become a prime post-9pm destination for an unusual mix of the artsy, just-turned-21 set, longtime locals and gay and lesbian crowd.
