I 2nd the bathroom comment.

I don't know what the mens room looks like,but I have been coming to this bar since it opened.Please do something with the ladies room.It's disgusting.Where is the health dept?Isnt this an issue for them? This used to be a little more happening.I like that it's a bar for post punks and goths,etc..That would be me as well.But many of our scene has died of overdoses or moved.I like that it's a getaway from all the meatheads,sorority girls,jocks.But that shouldn't be the only reason why I go to a bar.There used to be so many hot guys that would hang out there.I never see any hotties.Unless they bring along their girlfriend.

Anybody Home!!

Well, going there was truly an experience. We went there on Friday night at 9:30pm and nobody was there. No music, no bands, no happy hour, and NO people! Alot happening at the other bars on the street. The Poor House is soooo poor. Needs alot of work done. Thank goodness it is dark in there. Be very careful using the bathroom ladies. Anything can crawl out of the holes in the walls. Thank goodness they do not serve food there. I can truly say that the bartender was a sweetheart. Great guy! I felt sorry for him being there all alone. Do not recommend, go somewhere else.

Has it's faults, but a good place to spend a few hours

A good place to hang out. Fine selection of beers and the people that work there are very friendly. As far as being trendy, it's not in the traditional sense regarding the area it's in, but it is in the sense that a lot of people there are the ""anti-trendy"" trendy types. A lot of guys pretending to be rockabilly greasers and a lot of girls trying to be Betty Page lookalikes. Get beyond that and you can find some genuinely interesting people to talk to. As far as the live music...once you've been a few times you'll tire of it quick. While there's some diversity to it, it's not often and you'll find yourself seeing the same generic ""blues"" bands over and over again. Also, you'll find yourself wanting to go outside more often than not if you want to engage in any conversation, there's nothing worse than being in mid-conversation when the band comes back from break and having to scream in the ear of whomever you're speaking to. Needless to say, the music is very loud and this won't be the place to go to talk for very long. You may complain that there is no food, but the ""poorhouse"" atmosphere and genuine run down appearence may make you glad. I wouldn't eat anything that wasn't prepackaged elsewhere. There are some good places nearby for food though and no minds when you bring your food back to the bar with you.

Downhome Blues & Beers

Eat elsewhere because there's no food for your stomach, just food for your soul. Great live music. Super selection of beers. Bartenders that know their way around the bottles of booze to serve you the perfect drink. Friendly, funky & fun.
