Been there 3 times and i must say that the place looked too good to be true. The atmosphere was vivid, the location couldn't be better and 3 dollar beers is something you don't find around very much. I was even lucky enough to be served by a very nice and polite bartender who reminded me of a of a good italian friend from highschool. However, last time i was there (and actually the first one as well) a short blond bartender went out of her way to make us (i was with a couple of friends who live around the corner) feel unwelcome. i guess taking money from straight people is all good but showing some good manners to them is just out of the question.
Being part of the hospitality industry for the past 12 years, i can tell when some people just don't wanna deal with certain customers and despite our effort to show we were decent, good paying customers, we still got treated poorly, to say the least. don't get me wrong, the place, the people (most of them anyways) that go there are very nice and down to earth, but i think certain employees should show common sense and treat all paying customers with the respect they deserve.
