"If you want something fancy this may not be the place for you. If you want a laid-back atmosphere with a really cool staff and unexpectedly good food then you are in the right place. The bar has live music as well as bingo on some nights. The interior is a garage transformed into a bar-the bar seats about ten and the rest of the space has table seating. Great place."... more
