Think dark & cool with all the right beers on tap. Not a very big place - so go early. Food looked good- we didn’t eat. Bartenders were all nice & attentive.

For some crazy reason people have stapled dollar bills all over the inside of this pub, filings and walls are completely covered. Waitress said there's over $35,000 there. If you want to add to the collection, tell the waitress and she will bring over markers...More
