Had a blast here last night, great food, great staff, even better drinks. We grabbed a pint downstairs and made our way up stairs to the air conditioned section and ended up spending 3 hours drinking and meeting a bunch of people. Can't wait to go back.more

But of course, I also saw a lot of locals grabbing a drink after work and socializing. Aka....IT WAS PACKED DURING HAPPY HOUR TIME lol. We had to creep and stalk for a while before we got a table upstairs.

The place is a very...more
