The drink specials are not that great but the atmosphere is comfortable for just about anyone. The staff has always been friendly and there has always been a diverse crowd. Perfect place to take your significant other or a small group of friends for a relaxing evening of drinks and laughs.

I've been to this lovely establishment twice already. Not out of choice. The first time was a couple years ago. I was meeting a friend I haven't seen in a long time. I sat there and questioned the annoying, yet interesting, people. Then I questioned why I didn't leave after one drink. The second time was a few weeks ago. Again, to meet someone. As I waited at the bar, I noticed a very diverse crowd. There were movers and shakers, college kids and old people trying to get noticed by the college kids, and a drunk 40 year old woman talking a poor guy's ear out about nothing. I ordered a gin and tonic and sat down with my friends. They agreed. Boneheadz is a terrible bar, but yet we were having fun people watching.
I sipped my drink. Horrible. Either the tonic lost its tonic or the idiot bartender put water instead. I go to the bar and kindly mentioned that I think their tonic is flat. He apologized and offered another drink. Before I could speak, a female bartender interjected and asked what was wrong. I told her. She sipped it and said it was fine to her. I was fuming, but yet smiling. Fuming because I've been drinking gin and tonics for years. I know what gin and tonics taste like, thank you. I switched to a Capecod. I figure they couldn't screw that up.
I finally sit down with my friends and we begin to mock people. Because, well, because it was a perfect establishment to do it in. The jukebox is one that is of the computer type. Any artist. Great. Few songs. Not great. Boneheadz standards. Not so great. The damn thing was packed full of money playing songs that you can hear on 96.1 or 98.5. Worst of all, the manager put in 20 bucks and continued to grace us with his excellent taste of music. If anyone requested a song on there, and pressed the ""Play Now"" button, he skipped it.
As we finish our drinks, and I finish my ""gin and tonic,"" we decided to play music that would rock they're socks off. Ratt, Foreigner, AC/DC.
