Like your beer nice and warm? This is the place to go! I'd like to tell you how much they charge, but the staff doesn't know half the time. You can place the same drink order 3 times and pay 3 different prices. They ILLEGALLY RAISE DRINK PRICES AT NIGHT and say the money is for the bands but they don't get it . The owner says ""How much would you be paying downtown?"" Well, downtown bars have some degree of class and don't look and smell like a junkyard!
The filth of this place goes from the washrooms (the women's room doesn't have the toilet mounted to the floor, very often overflows and there are WORMS EATING THE ROTTING WOOD FLOOR), to the stools (most are beaten to a pulp held together with tape and uncomfortable), to the bar (ever hear of a bar rag?), to the garnishments (overripe and BROWN), to the glassware. If you are lucky you MIGHT get a glass without lipstick or grease on it at no extra charge. Even the ICE IS BAD!!! Ever have a gin and tonic with black muck on the ice cubes? It's quite the experience.
Your best bet for entertainment here is on a night the bands DON'T show up because the music sucks. Its usually thrash bands playing their very first show before moving on to a better venue with a decent stage and sound. Or, if you are adventureous, ask the owner about the smoking ban. He'll go on and on hhow it's hurt his business and everybody in the city goes to Indiana to drink. Being in this place made me wish I was in Indiana. Watching TV would have been nice, but they only have 2 small sets at opposite ends of the bar and if yo aren't right in front of it you won't see a thing. I couldn't imagine trying to watch a sporting thing here.
If you aren't white and talk on a cell phone the owner will tell you that you are a drug dealer selling drugs in his bar. The sick thing is that drugs wouldn't even make this place worth walking into. I'd rather share a bottle of Mad Dog with a bum that has gum disease
